Hello #polyam history fam! We return from a bit of a hiatus because 1) it seems there's a worldwide pandemic on and 2) your authors were preparing and then editing (and editing and editing) a article on the work we are doing, which will form part of the introduction Image and the theory that will eventually underlie our book. We will be sharing more about this in the future!

If you are reading this, we hope you and yours are safe&sound&healthy&staying inside! This is one of the harder challengs the #polyamory #polyam community

Hello again! We are pleased to be telling the #polyam / #nonmonogamous (hi)story of Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950), the American poet, feminist, and playwright. Millay is very well-known among #polyam communities today due to a number of articles that @brainpickings wrote about her “polyamorous” love letters: brainpickings.org/2016/02/22/edn…

Sackville-West wrote her husband:

"I am in the middle of reading Orlando, in such a turmoil of excitement and confusion that I scarcely know where (or who) I am!" Sackville-West's comment about not knowing who she was was in part because she was reading about herself: Woolf incorporated S-W and her habit of dressing as a man the book, which is about a man who transforms into a woman and discovers how much less freedom he/she now has.
