Oh, lots!

Posted to WritersAndGenres

Lenore Kandel, Lesely Scalapino, Joane Kyger and the biggy, Diane DiPrima. There are a certian amount of books by the "beat girlfriends" that are worth looking at.

Some women continuing the beat tradition into the sixties are Anne Waldman, Bobby Louis Hawkins (former wife of Robert Creeley), um.... There are many more, but I'm sort at a loss to remember them at the moment. Doesn't help that a lot of the beat women went out of print while the gents are considered classics and taught in American Lit courses!
