Abstract:

This book describes the southern lesbian feminist writers movement. The author describes the history of the movement from the 1970s: from lesbian publishing, through lesbian feminist print culture to its legacies. Explored are the engagement of southern lesbian feminists in radical politics and southern identity during the 1980s, the central role of transgressive sexuality in their literary work and their spatial imaginations. Concluded is that though the women in print movement is transformed by the rise of megabookstores and ebooks, lesbian writers still write. Underground lesbian presses, self-published lesbian writers and queer book festivals create a new system of distribution.
