BroadsideIn 2021 a digital archive was made available of all back issues of the ground-breaking Canadian feminist newspaper, Broadside, to which I made several contributions 1979-1983, on Feminist writers, ethnic feminism, feminist theory, future of feminism, International Women’s Day and International feminism: women in Greece.

In 2011 I made available a chapter from The Doomed Bridegroom, which had been published in 1998. “Inside the Copper Mountain” is about the fate of Vasyl Stus, the Ukrainian poet-dissident who perished in the Gulag in 1985. This is a very good example from my own work of creative nonfiction.
