About Sadie Girl Press
Sadie Girl Press, founded by Sarah Thursday, is dedicated to creating print form collections of poetry, art, and beyond! Began in April 2014, SGP works with emerging poets and artists to give physical form to their work.
Sarah Thursday is a music obsessed, Long Beach poetry advocate, who has been writing poetry since she was very young. In 1992, she made her very first chapbook and continued with four more up through 2001. She took about ten years off from poetry and focused all her creative energy into teaching. After a series of major life events, she began writing again and for the first time, connected with the local poetry community. Through a bi-monthly workshop called The Poetry Lab, she was inspired to begin a website to feature local Long Beach poets and poetry events, called Cadence Collective. The website provided opportunities to connect to other poets in her community and to co-host a monthly reading with G. Murray Thomas, called “2nd Mondays Poetry Party“. In 2014, she founded Sadie Girl Press to explore her other passion: layout and design of print books. She has since published many chapbooks and anthologies, incorporating writers and artists she loves. She has been published in many fine journals and anthologies, interviewed by Poetry LA, and received a 2017 Best of the Net nomination for “To the Men who told me my Love was not enough.”
