Divine Feminist: An Anthology of Womxn and Non-Binary Folks, forthcoming April 2021 by Get Fresh Books, is a collection of art and poetry by a multitude of genius, glorious womxn and non-binary folx who have found the divine in all places—their bodies, their cities, in heartbreak and politics, in sex and motherhood—and for who art and literature are both a form of spiritual practice and an act of protest. 

Join us for a special reading by the contributors listed below. Proceeds from the sale of Divine Feminist will go to the Pink Door Retreat, a space exclusively for non-men writers of color to come into exchange and engagement with each other to provide a space for mentorship and exploration of ideas while building an active and informed literary community.
