The mission of Belladonna* Series is to promote publication and literary community among women writers who are writing off-center work that is adventurous, multi-form, multicultural, multi-gendered, unpredictable, political & critical, formally innovative, hybrid & experimental, that reaches across the boundaries and binaries of literary genre and artistic fields, and that questions the gender binary. Ours is prose that is situational and poetry that is inter-subjective or performative or witnessing.
Since our founding in 1999 as a reading and salon series at Bluestockings Bookstore, Belladonna has expanded to become, in addition to a literary series, a publisher of chaplets, chapbooks, and full-length books of poetry and multi-genre writing, serving women writers whose work has not yet reached a broad audience. We reorganized as a ten-person collaborative in 2010 and acquired 501(c)(3) non-profit status in 2011.
