The Belladonna

I was sick of hearing “women aren’t funny.”

In late 2017, another comedy writer asked for collaborators on a project. After much toil, four of us launched The Belladonna, a satire site designed to amplify the voices of women writers and other marginalized genders. At the end of the first year, we had 20,000 followers on our platforms. We must have been doing something righ—especially considering our budget for advertising was $30!

We have big plans and we won’t rest until we accomplish them! Besides continuing to grow the site, we’re also rolling out a series of variety shows at universities around the country. We’re also focusing on jointly written editor, like our piece in McSweeney’s.

Here are some of my favorite pieces that I’ve authored or co-authored

Dear Diary, Rolf is a Mansplaining Nazi

I’m the Motherfucking Oxford Comma

I, Pepe Le Pew, Can No Longer Catcall the Ladies

Found: Anne Shirley’s Bucket List for Summer 1883

Lipstick Shade, Harlequin Romance Title or Female Literary Figure who Grappled with Insanity?

Also, check out all our talented authors over here at The Belladonna. We are humbled to work with amazing writers, and thrilled to let them be heard.
