Legacies of Lesbian Literature Project

Organized by: Cheryl Pletcher

THE STORY:

The Legacies of Lesbian Literature project will culminate in a comprehensive documentary that examines the history of lesbian literature and how society at large influenced key authors' works and how their works in turn influenced the genre and also society.

Documentation of the history of lesbian literature has not been done in any similar format to date.  Recognition of the significance of lesbian writing, and of its impact on so many lives, as well as society's views of homosexuality, needs to be documented and expressed.

The initial focus of the Legacies of Lesbian Literature project is on the development of lesbian fiction from the 1920s through current times.  The project has been divided into three phases for funding purposes.

PHASE 1: A collection of video interviews of authors who have made a significant impact on the genre.  Some of the authors to be interviewed are: Dorothy Allison, Ann Bannon, Rita Mae Brown, Emma Donoghue, Katherine V. Forrest, Jewelle Gomez, Jenifer Levin, Lee Lynch, Alice Walker and Jeanette Winterson.

PHASE 2: Development of the documentary.  This includes script-writing, production, editing, graphics and sound.

PHASE 3: Production of the DVDs, promotion and distribution.
