Which Is the Manliest Literary Magazine of Them All?
(excerpt from Slate’s blog: http://www.slate.com)
Dear WNBA-SF Chapter Members,
Big news! The winner of the 2015 WNBA Award is Amy King, the moving force and executive behind VIDA, Women in Literary Arts.
VIDA is an organization founded in 2009 that counts men and women whose works are reviewed in literary journals each year. VIDA’s mission is to bring attention to gender equality issues in contemporary literature: a laudable mission, and one that aligns with the mission of WNBA.
Members of WNBA-SF Chapter include publishers, editors, booksellers, librarians, reviewers, publicists, authors of poetry, memoir, fiction and nonfiction for all ages. We comprise a Bay Area literary network that can come together to advocate for women in the world of words:books magazines, blogs, and media.
SF Chapter can create activities that support women’s voice and one another’s professional literary work. How?
Join us May 16th at the Oakland Main Library to plan next year’s program. Enjoy the inspired workshop presented by our member, KJ Landis, “Eat Well, Be Well.” Bring your ideas and creative energy.
I’d like to thank those who’ve served so well this past year! It’s been an amazing team effort that produced our many events and meetings. To read about those and the volunteers who made it happen, go to this page: https://wnba-sfchapter.org/volunteer-opportunities-wnba-sf/

Kate Farrell, SF Chapter President
