what is femku?

fem·ku
femˌko͞o
noun

a feminist haiku, or a haiku written by someone femme-presenting

In September 2017 I coined the term femku in the subtitle of my first book Radical Women: A Book of Femku (out of print). Since then, the term has really stuck with me and I wanted to create a safe space for womxn and non-binary folx to share their work.
