2020 Timely Literary Movement

The Claw

This loose affiliation of 19 of Philadelphia’s most talented women writers was in full ascendency when the COVID-19 crisis descended. How great, then, that when we retreated into our bunkers, we did so with new, powerful works by Kiley Reid and Carmen Maria Machado and Liz Moore and Emma Copley Eisenberg. Even better: We have so many more to look forward to.
