Abstract or Description

The workshop 'Soft Covers: Queer Feminist Publishing,' led by Flora Dunster, Helena Reckitt, Kefiloe Siwisa and Amy Tobin, explores queer feminist publications as sites of critical community and world-building. This workshop introduces germinal periodicals from the UK, US and Italy from the 1970s and 1980s, including Heresies, Quim, Square Peg and Sotto-sopra, in tandem with publishing projects by contemporary collectives.

Additional Information:

'Soft Covers' was organised as part of 'Strange Perfume,' a LGBTQIA book fair that focuses primarily on artists books and printed matter. Taking place across two days, the fair will feature stands from an international mix of independent publishers and artists, selling queer fiction, critical and political writing, drawing and printmaking. Alongside this, a programme of performances, readings and workshops on Saturday will reflect the diversity of queer artists’ publishing, including activist, historical and more recent work.
