Writer Rachel Levitsky is the founder of the Belladonna Series, promoting feminist avant-garde poetics.
Levitsky’s hybrid poetries and prose utilize politics, humor and abstraction to map the structural reality of everyday life. She is also playing with and pushing against the constrained form of the English language sentence. In 1999, Rachel started Belladonna Series in order to investigate and promote feminist avant-garde poetics. Belladonna Series is now Belladonna* Collaborative and Rachel is a participating member. At Pratt Institute, Rachel is core faculty in the new MFA in Writing. She is a founding officer at the Office of Recuperative Strategies (oors.net). Her recent books are NEIGHBOR (UDP), The Story of My Accident is Ours (Futurepoem) and the chapbook Renoemos.
