BLF Press Newsletter - August 2017

Greetings!
The past two months have been a whirlwind of activity for BLF Press! Last month, we traveled to Chicago for the Golden Crown Literary Society conference, where Lez Talk: A Collection of Black Lesbian Short Fiction was a Goldie finalist, and our founder Stephanie Andrea Allen, who also co-directs the Black Lesbian Literary Collective with Lauren Cherelle, co-facilitated a workshop on creating sustainable writing communities for lesbians of color.

Greetings!
 

It's hard to believe that it's already mid-May, but it is, and that means that summer is almost upon us.

We are honored and humbled that our work is being recognized by the Golden Crown Literary Society.

BLF Press Newsletter-April 2017

Greetings!

Today, April 5, 2017, marks the one-year anniversary of BLF Press's first release, Lez Talk: A Collection of Black Lesbian Short Fiction.  So much has happened with Lez Talk over the past year, including profiles on the Ms. Magazine blogHuffington Post, and meeting so many of you while we were on tour with the book. 

When I started BLF Press in 2014, I wasn't sure what direction our work would take, I just knew that I wanted to create a space where Black lesbian and queer voices would be honored, and it was my good fortune that our first title was a cacophony of Black lesbian literary voices. Since then, we've published another anthology, as well as my collection of short stories, and we've got more exciting work on the horizon.

BLF Press Newsletter-March 2017

Greetings!
 

It's the Ides of March, and I'd hoped that today might be the beginning of the end for the current political administration. It isn't, at least not so far, so we'll just keep doing what we always do: supporting and amplifying the literary work of women of color. With that in mind, we're offering a 20% discount on your entire purchase for the rest of Women's History Month. Just enter WHM2017 at checkout. .
