Elana Dykewomon is an activist, author, and teacher and has a fiercely dedicated readership. Among the finest thinkers—and writers—the women’s movement has produced, she has worked for the last twenty-five years as an editor and teacher of composition and creative writing, both independently and for SF State University.
Her books, which foreground ordinary lesbian heroism, include the recent What Can I Ask – New and Selected Poems 1975-2014 (A Sapphic Classic); the Lambda-nominee, Risk; the Lambda and Ferro-Grumley award winning Beyond the Pale; the 1970’s classic, Riverfinger Women; two collections of short-stories, Moon Creek Road and They Will Know Me By My Teeth; and two books of poetry, Nothing Will Be As Sweet As The Taste and Fragments from Lesbos. She was an editor of the lesbian-feminist journal, Sinister Wisdom, from 1987-1994. She is also a recipient of the Duggins Outstanding Mid-Career Novelists’ Prize.
