Dorothy in Chicago

We had a wonderful reading at Corbett vs. Dempsey in Wicker Park last weekend. Check out some photos on our Facebook page. Also last week, Dorothy was featured in the new issue of Time Out Chicago: "'Both books are inventive but in totally different ways,' says Dorothy editor Danielle Dutton. 'The only thing I’m really looking for is something that takes risks and is really fantastic.'" Read the full article online . . .

Dorothy at The Paris Review!

"I wanted to create a space where women felt encouraged to submit their work. Working at Dalkey, I saw that the number of submissions were overwhelmingly from men. Right around this time, too, I was talking about a book with a man who said to me, “I really liked it because five pages in I didn’t know it was written by a woman. I couldn’t tell a woman had written it.” And I thought, Are you kidding me? Are we still talking about this nearly a hundred years after A Room of One’s Own?"
