“The rippling of past actions and present repercussions, the interconnectedness among genders, the history of trauma and the search for healing permeates and suffuses the poems, creative nonfiction, and fiction of Ms. Aligned 4.…Together we continue to discuss, question, and encourage one another in bringing together the Ms. Aligned series, expanding our understanding of gender, its influence, its fluidity, and the visions that support and free us.”—Lillian Howan, author of The Charm Buyers
