The Rumpus, Feminist Press, and McNally Jackson present: Sapphic Summer

Join your favorite emerging and established authors this summer for a series of readings and conversations around all things sapphic—how identity, sexuality, and desire inform their writing, the queer literary lineages they draw from, what it means to celebrate and center sapphic love, and much more.

We define “sapphic” as an umbrella term for attraction and relationships between women, inclusive of trans and cis women as well as nonbinary people who align and identify with these experiences. In this series, we aim to uplift sapphic writers who are often marginalized or excluded from the narrow scope of sapphic representation in mainstream media. For the first event of the series, Carley Moore, Alicia Mountain, and imogen xtian smith will discuss sapphic desire.
