Our Stories Make

Our Stories Make Us

The inspiration for this issue of Register came from Marianne DeKoven’s wonderful book, Rich and Strange. Part of what the book explores is how the writing of women has been marginalized throughout time in the canon, and posits that this marginalization partially comes from a lack of exposure in history. Although we have come a long way, the dialogue that arches over literature is one created by men. This month we present only writings by women. Some articles talk about what it means to be a woman writer, or to write about women, and others if there is any difference between the genders in what they write and how. We hope that by taking full space to consider how women are thinking about literature we can expand the conversation around gender in writing today. As with every issue we are bringing new voices into the narrative, be it through our New Fiction category or In Translation, in which we are excited to share a story by Clarice Lispector, who only in the past few years has been translated from Spanish. Thank you for reading, Elizabeth Pike - Editor in chief ‘A novel is what you dream in your night sleep. A novel is not waking thoughts although it is written and thought with waking thoughts. But really a novel goes as dreams go in sleeping at night and some dreams are like anything and some dreams are like something and some dreams change and some dreams are quiet and some dreams are not. And some dreams are just what any one would do only a little different always just a little different and that is what a novel is.’ – Gertrude Stein
