About her professional situation

She wrote short stories and published them in an influential Serbian magazine from the beginning of the XXth century - Srpski književni glasnik (The Serbian Literary Gazette). Jovan Skerlić, a renowned critic of that time, wrote very commendable about her. In these stories, Leposava wrote about topics which were very unusual for the time, like: homosexuality, self-destruction, suicide, free love, and rebellious intellectual women. She used modern literary techniques, too, such as automatic writing and fragmentation. She was forgotten soon after her death, up until the end of the XXth century, when her stories were rediscovered in literary magazines, and collected to be published in a book.
