This week on Women in the Arts at the U, our guest, the great fiction writer Mandy Mincher, spoke about writing her novel about a 19th century Parisian violinist, as well as what she learned from editing WomenArts Quarterly Journal and how she balances her work and writing life. Check it out here.
We are very excited to announce the release of Volume 3, Issue 4 of WomenArts Quarterly Journal! This issue contains a great interview with Amanda Coplin, the writer of the fantastic 2012 novel The Orchardist, as well as a review of Pistol Annies's sophomore smash, a timely essay about the history and changing landscape of gun advertisements, beautiful and eccentric prints and ink drawings, and of course an engaging story and poems galore. I highly recommend checking out this issue; it's chock-full of goodness. Pick up your copy here.
