Hi everyone! My name is Liat Kaplan, and I've been interning behind the scenes at Belladonna* this summer. I'm a sophomore at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California, and I'm originally from St. Paul, Minnesota.
As a dual literature and gender/women's studies major, Belladonna* was an ideal place for me to have a summer internship. I had the opportunity to learn some of the ins and outs of the independent publishing world while immersed in an intersectional feminist environment. I also got to read a lot of poetry, which is a pretty great job perk.
In addition to helping with Belladonna's regular daily work, I spent much of my time here converting some of the older out-of-print chaplets into PDFs to make them available (for free!) on the website. I hope everyone will check it out and enjoy reading them as much as I did.
Thank you to the Belladonna* crew for teaching me so much this summer. And thank you to all the readers and supporters who make Belladonna* possible!
