Kathleen Tankersley Young

From Tether 3, pages 9–10

Young not only succeeded in writing avant-garde poetry, she also encouraged others by promoting their work and making it available to a reading public. In 1931–32, she devoted her energy to publishing and began her own press, the Modern Edition Press, publishing fourteen chapbooks by poets and writers. Significantly, she published Paul Bowles’s first book, Two Poems (1933), Carl Rakosi’s first book, Two Poems (1933), A Wreath for Margery by Horace Gregory (1933), and pamphlets by other young, avant-garde poets.
