From the marginalized outskirts of the Kingdom of Poetry and Art, once again I bring you an issue brimming with powerful and artful lesbian voices and visions. Issue 14 is dedicated to Risa Denenberg, whose voice, vision, and loyalty to lesbians has been shown to me over and over as my business partner at Headmistress Press. Risa was interviewed about Headmistress by The Writer's Chronicle, where she mentioned Lavender Review, and by Entropy, where again she referred to Lavender Review. Thanks, Risa <3 Check out Risa's new book Whirlwind @ Lesbos and my new limited-edition hand-made chapbook The Lesbian. Click here for Pushcart Prize nominations!
