The California Journal of Women Writers is a new online journal featuring original reviews and criticism of women's literature from across North America, as well as interviews with authors and commentary on critiques published elsewhere. We do not focus on any one type of literature, as long as the text is written by a female author and is of interest to TCJWW editors.
