Best feminist literary whistle-blowers - 2004
ELIZABETH MERRICK, LAUREN CERAND
Why are the best male writers getting their work published in well-respected literary magazines while their female peers whip up dating tips in the Glamour ghetto? ELIZABETH MERRICK and LAUREN CERAND, writers and two co-founders of the all-women Cupcake Reading Series, blog about women writers they admire and rail against chick-lit crap. Merrick also posts a regular "reckoning" wit. The New Yorker, in which she breaks down the sad men-to-women ratio of contributors with an appropriate level of piss and sass.
