I am the most ambitious person I know and I’m never satisfied with anything when it comes to work, I’m always stretched too thin and trying to make everything happen all at once. I want to run a successful, meaningful publishing house and be the best selling poet in the world, and getting there feels like a slow crawl, inch by fucking inch.
But today Where Are You Press moved into it’s first office besides my living room. Kiki and I spent the whole day on our hands and knees cleaning it out. It’s small and out of the way, but it’s ours. And we have a team of 4 incredible women, all of whom are younger than 23, making this publishing house better every day and putting out these books by amazing women writers who I fucking love.
I built this thing with my own hands and it’s still standing. It’s only getting better. Today is a day for gratitude. Thank you, all of you, for reading our books and supporting us. And to the Where Are You Press women, your kindness and talent are astounding.
