Experimental writing by contemporary women?

This list seems a little thin, even for a listicle. Who would you add to the list? For me it would be geniuses like: M. NourbeSe Philip, Lisa Robertson, Sina Queyras, Marie-Claire Blais, Lucy Ellman, Vanessa Place, NK Jesimin, and the list goes on.

The world of experimental writing tends to be very homogenous. The publishing industry gives men, especially white cis straight men, more room to blend genres, push boundaries, and simply be weird in their writing. People in positions of power are more often given the chance to break convention through experimental writing.

The following is a short list of works by contemporary women writers, primarily women of color, pushing the boundaries of genre through experimental writing.
