Description

Christina Parker received an Artist Enrichment grant from KFW to revise and seek publication for her full-length poetry manuscript, Fling Light.Her collection is a series of linked narrative poems about a young girl’s journey into womanhood. She is working with poet and mentor Leatha Kendrick to enrich her growth as a feminist poet, bring that work to a wider audience, and encourage other women to question gender roles in their home culture and to tell their stories.

***
The artist or arts organization telling this story was supported in part by a grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women. KFW is based on the belief that when women and girls advance, so does Kentucky. For more information about the foundation and the social change artmaking being done by the individuals and organizations it supports, visit www.kfw.org."
