Beginning in the later twentieth century, Anna Livia has written, compiled, and translated short stories and novels, as well as social and literary criticism and theory. In her fiction and non-fiction she is concerned with the practical and material concerns of contemporary women and the sometimes more abstract ways in which linguistics and cultural institutions shape female (especially lesbian) identity and experience. Anna Livia has stated that My radical feminist and lesbian politics informs everything I write. I write to change the world.
