About GirlChild Press
GirlChild Press publishes work that celebrates the triumph and defiance of girls and women, and provides a quality forum to bring their diverse voices to the foreground.
With the tremendous success of GirlChild's most recent book, Growing Up Girl: An Anthology of Voices from Marginalized Spaces, the press is attracting more projects and writers. GirlChild's next anthology, Just Like A Girl: A Manifesta!, is slated for August 2008. A parenting handbook, centered on girls, is also in the works and will be released in September 2009.
