NCWWR is a digital documentary edition, dedicated to recovering the 'lost' critical reception of women writers in the 19C. NCWWR collects artifacts of women writers published from 1789-1900 appearing in British and American periodicals: these artifacts include reviews, extracts of prose and poetry, tributes, advertisements, notices of publication, and references. Then, using an Omeka database, our editorial team transcribes, edits, annotates and codes these artifacts in TEI/XML. NCWWR expands on Romantic Women Writers Reviewed, a 9-volume print series published between 2011-13 by Pickering and Chatto.
