Fat Girl Finishing School
The first full-length collection of poems from Rachel Wiley, whose work spans from body image, to love and loss, and feminism. Fat Girl Finishing School is a love letter to Wiley’s living body. When confronted with fatphobia, racism, misogyny, and shame each poem chooses self love, despite society’s expectations of conformity. More than just a book about one single identity, Fat Girl Finishing School makes intersectionality dimensional. This is a book steeped in experience, every story is striking, powerful, and unmistakably palpable.
Nothing is Okay
Nothing is Okay is the second full-length poetry collection by Rachel Wiley, whose work simultaneously deconstructs the lies that we were taught about our bodies and our beings, and builds new ways of viewing ourselves. As she delves into queerness, feminism, fatness, dating, and race, Wiley molds these topics into a punching critique of culture and a celebration of self. A fat positive activist, Wiley’s work soars and challenges the bounds of bodies and hearts, and the ways we carry them.
