How 10 Women of Color Actually Feel About Working in Book Publishing via Bustle

One of the things we love most about poetry– especially this empowered #instapoet generation– is that the medium of the internet allows for all voices from all poets to be discoverable. It’s not always the case, evidenced in Bustle’s exposé-style feature on women of color and how they feel they’re represented in the publishing industry workplace. It’s a gripping, eye-opening read, and we highly recommend that everyone read it.

6 Authors Answer: If You Could Invite Anyone to Dinner, Who Would You Choose? via Bustle

This is one of our favorite games to play and having six of our favorite contemporary authors share their answers is bliss. Bustle breaks down each other, her most recent modern work, and then reveals her imaginary dinner party guests, plus her rationale for her roster.

Kendall Jenner’s Hilarious “Fraternal Twin” Keeps Photoshopping Himself into Her Photos via My Modern Met

News: Kirby Jenner, Kendall Jenner's satirical "fraternal twin"

We love the mania that surrounds the Jenner and the Kardashian Clans, but not nearly as much as we love the satire they provoke. We know that the story is old news– almost three years old– but the comedy value of “Kirby Jenner’s” work and world is, dare we say it, timeless. This one won’t challenge you intellectually, but laughter is a tonic for the soul and with the last weeks of winter taking their sweet time moving on out, we can’t help but crave a good chuckle.
