Elaine Equi introduces Laura Buccieri
Tina Darragh introduces K. Lorraine Graham
For each installment of Roll Call, presented by Belladonna* Collaborative, two previously published poets from the Belladonna* chaplet archive have selected and will introduce a poet whose work expands and enriches the tradition of experimental feminist writing. Roll Call builds upon networks and communities within the feminist avant-garde while materializing the breadth of Belladonna* Collaborative’s twenty-year publishing history.
