Course Adoption

Are you considering using Belladonna* as part of your next class? Thank you! Our books are great for course adoption and have been used in a number of classes including literature seminars, creative writing workshops, and women and gender studies classes, among others.

All of our books (except those out of print) are available at a bulk discount for course adoption. Professors may also receive a complimentary exam copy. Please contact us directly at

Would you like to support Belladonna*, but can’t decide which book to assign? Please contact us, and we’d be happy to recommend a book to best fit your course. Our chaplets are also great for course adoption and are very affordable!

If you’re teaching in the New York City area, please encourage your students to attend our events. Many of our readings are followed by a discussion, and they make excellent additions to your class conversations.

Two of our books were specifically published as companion texts: Looking Up Harryette Mullen by Barbara Henning (2011) and No Gender: Reflections on the Life & Work of kari edwards (2009). Providing detailed interviews and correspondense on Mullen’s poetry and writing process, Looking Up Harryette Mullen is the perfect text to read along with her most well-known books including Sleeping with the Dictionary, Trimmings, and Muse & Drudge. Similarly, No Gender was published as a compendium to kari edwards’ Bharat jiva, also published by Belladonna*. You can purchase No Gender and Bharat jiva together for $33 and receive free shipping, or contact us for a bulk discount.
