Bone Bouquet is a biannual print journal publishing new writing by female and non-binary poets, from artists both established and emerging. We aim to highlight the important literary work of women and non-binary people, who are often underrepresented in the writing community and popular media. Rather than personal politics, our criteria are vibrance and surprise. Our goal is to provide an additional arena where these writers and their readership can find one another, growing the writers’ audience while building their reputations as artists.
