Mission: 2018 marks the 19th anniversary of the Belladonna* mission 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 275 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.

In belated honor of national intern day, we turn to Lindsey Hoover, a past Belladonna* intern and lover of literature. She writes,

I chose to read from Jennifer Firestone's Gates & Fields because she is both a mentor and mother figure to me. It was through her that I was introduced to the Belladonna* community. Without Belladonna* I believe my voice would have remained lost beneath the surface of things. It is for this reason, and many more, that I have so much gratitude for the words this community has given me and the words it shares with the world.

Help us by donating and sharing so more voices, texts and lives can be unearthed and brought to the surface of life!

General information

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.
