A Note From Your Curator and Writer:
MoonSpit is feminine grit. My main goal on moonspitpoetry.com is to provide transparency on a feminist poet trying to provide feminist positive options–all in the effort of supporting gender, cultural, and racial equality. I want this blog and website to be a space of us learning about us in all of our grace and humiliations. How to overcome prejudice with honor and intellect. To share our triumphs and provide examples of when we failed and tried again to succeed. We all deserve respect. I hope we create a space here of thoughtful praise in dedication to a happy, happy future. Please feel able to interact and comment on resources and opinions on this site with encouragement, opportunities for growth, and widening perspectives. If you are interested in collaborating email me at moonspitpoetry[at]gmail[dot]com.
