Essay Worth Your Time

I read was an essay today by writer Claire Vaye Watkins: On Pandering . It's about being a women writer in this misogynistic publishing culture and what we as women find ourselves doing to whore ourselves to a culture that doesn't respect us, treats us like shit, and, in general, refuses to acknowledge our writer selves.

I wrote a long post that I just deleted because it really served no purpose other than to vent my frustration with the current publishing climate. Anyway, read her essay.
