Transcript Lesbian Writers During the weekend of September 19- 21 approximately one hundred women convened for the Second Annual Lesbian Writers Conference in Chicago. Sponsored by Womanpress , the conference attracted writers from New York, Pennsylvania, Iowa, and other states. An address was given by Barbara Grier (Gene Damon) who helped organize the Daughters of Bilitis twenty years ago, wrote the book review column for The Ladder, and edited that magazine from 1966 to 1972. Barbara's talk reviewed the history of TL and then focused on two vital needs of Lesbians: the biographies still to be written and the establishment of a much more extensive network of publications. "There are so many unknown women," she lamented. "All the women out there are really, really waiting to hear about their past. We were not born just when we came out." Saturday was devoted to a variety of workshops focusing on songwriting, poetry, small presses, lay-out and design, self-publishing, and distribution. In the afternoon I joined the poetry workshop which was a joyous celebration of women loving women. One participant raised the question: "What do you want to read? Why not write what you yourself are interested in reading as a Lesbian, a feminist, a woman?" This led to a discussion of Lesbian erotica, at which point everyone present pulled out their own erotic poems and shared them. It was a tremendously exciting, sensual hour, accented by clapping, laughter, and cries of "All right!" Sunday was given over to a woman's celebration and to the reading of individual poems and creations. An anthology compiled from the conference will be put out by Womanpress. If you want more information, write Marie Kuda, Womanpress, Box 59330, Chicago, Illinois 60645. Summing up my feelings as I left the conference: it was a nurturing, sometimes exciting and sustaining experience—something to draw upon for mental refreshment as I struggle for survival in the aridity of mid-America.
