In light of Nancy Fraser’s discussion of the formation of feminist counterpublics, this article assesses how Lola Lemire Tostevin and Daphne Marlatt have invented a public language in their writing for articulating the embodied experience of pregnancy. In so doing, I argue that Tostevin and Marlatt not only challenge the exclusion of women’s lives from avant-garde poetics – as diagnosed by Dorothy Lusk in Ogress Oblige – but they also contribute to the formation of a feminist counterpublic for articulating the social, political and physical experience of pregnancy in their writing.
