Pat Parker

Sinister Wisdom and A Midsummer Night's Press joined together to publish The Complete Works of Pat Parker in 2016. This is a much bigger project than anything we've done before. To help support this project, we've put together a special 56-page chapbook of Pat Parker's work, STRONG, with an original introduction by Cheryl Clarke. STRONG is exclusively available through Sinister Wisdom.

Thanks in advance for both your support of this project! Help us continue to spread the word about it by tagging us in your social media posts!
