Welcome to the newest project at Ooligan! Even at a press that has published a wide variety of genres and forms, from literary fiction all the way to translated Czech poetry, this newest acquisition is definitely different. Ooligan is excited to be partnering with CALYX, the very well established feminist literary press, to publish their 40th Anniversary Anthology! This seemingly strange partnership has taken place because, while CALYX has a phenomenal editorial board, it consists entirely of volunteers (except for the director). The (wo)manpower is simply not there to design, market, and publish this book the way that they want to, and that’s where we get to step in.
This project is just getting its legs under it, so to begin with our team is doing a lot of market research and establishing a social media presence, while the CALYX team mines through its enormous backlist. Look for upcoming Pinterest boards, Tumblr posts, and Facebook page that will keep you updated on this project as it progresses to its launch at AWP LA in 2016!
