Coming up in 2013… We are busy preparing two new books for publication: proxy by R. Erica Doyle and TwERK by LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, both of which will be Spring 2013 releases.
We are hosting events on our continued theme of Material Lives, the internship/volunteer economy, Queer Masculinity, and motherhood as well as publishing five full-length titles and our ongoing chaplet series, now approaching #150.
The Belladonna* mission is to promote the work of women writers who are adventurous, experimental, politically involved, multi-form, multicultural, multi-gendered, impossible to define, delicious to talk about, unpredictable and dangerous with language. Belladonna* has featured over 150 writers of wildly diverse age and origin, writers who work in conversation and collaboration in and between multiple forms, languages, and critical fields. As performance and as printed text, the work collects, gathers over time and space, and forms a conversation about the feminist avant-garde, what it is, and how it comes to be.
