Strongly Worded Women: The Best of the Year of Publishing Women
In 20156, Not a Pipe Publishing -- an independent publisher from Independence, Oregon -- became one of the only publishing companies in the world to accept author Kamila Shamsie's challenge to only publish women writers during 2018, making it the Year of Publishing Women. This collection of the best short story submissions, Strongly Worded Women, showcases the talent of eigthteen amazing writers across genres who all demonstrate the strength of their voices. Not a Pipe Publishing also published eight novels by seven women in 2018.
The stories in this anthology are as diverse and unique as the authors who wrote them. While some of these authors are also novelists, short stories are their own art form, and many authors wrote their stories to experiment in a different genre, or to play around with an idea. More than anything, these authors wanted to contribute to The Year of Publishing Women, to stand in solidarity with their fellow talented authors.
Here are the authors from the anthology who will be reading at Broadway Books: Tonya Lippert (coordinator of the evening), Sydney Culpepper (anthology editor), Elizabeth Beechwood, Lizzy Carney, Debby Dodds, Julia Figliotti, and Chloe Hagerman.
