Kate Gray’s For Every Girl is a love song to and celebration of the girl, the queer, the survivor in all of us. Here we find not only testimony to the resiliency of girls, but an invitation to delight in the pure pleasure of their joy. Step into these poems, and you step into a communion that will lighten the soul, not through penance or absolution, but through a simple assurance. Spanning two decades of work from the award-winning poet and novelist, Kate Gray, For Every Girl features new and selected poems, and includes a conversation between Kate Gray and Oregon Poet Laureate Emerita, Paulann Petersen.

About the Author

KATE GRAY'S first full-length book of poems, Another Sunset We Survive (Cedar House Books, 2007) was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award and followed chapbooks, Bone-Knowing (2006), winner of the Gertrude Press Poetry Prize and Where She Goes (2000), winner of the Blue Light Chapbook Prize. Kate's first novel, Carry the Sky, (Forest Avenue, 2014) stares at bullying without blinking. Over the years she's been awarded residencies at Hedgbrook, Norcroft, and Soapstone, and a fellowship from the Oregon Literary Arts. Her poetry and essays have been nominated for Pushcart Prizes. In Any More, Black Shoe, Kate Gray's novel-in-progress, she narrates, in Sylvia Plath's voice, what led to The Bell Jar and her suicide attempt in 1953. Kate's passion comes as a teacher, writing coach, and a volunteer writing facilitator with women inmates.
