On 24 Nov 2021, we celebrated the 2-year anniversary of Stories About Penises with readings by five contributors - Alex Carrigan, Anthony DiPietro, Liam Hogan, Molly McLellan and Thaddeus Rutkowski - and some provocative chit chat. It was a Zoom event, and we recorded it! You can watch the video on our blog.
Our debut anthology (Nov 2019). A literary collection of fiction, nonfiction and poetry. Thoughtfully selected, each one is focused in one way or another on, well, you know. Some are serious, some humorous, some deal with sexuality, some are feminist, some are erotic, and some deal with the medical and anatomical aspects of the penis. It's an eclectic mix that we hope will surprise you.
"Stories About Penises is a witty, energetic, honest and insightful collection of fiction, non-fiction and poetry that dazzles with every turn of the page. If you want humor, you'll get it here. If you want philosophical meditations on sexuality, you'll get it. Most of all, if you want compelling writing that's been thoughtfully collected... on a topic both taboo and pervasive... this anthology is for you." — Nate Ragolia, publisher and author of There You Feel Free and The Retroactivist.
