Seeking Book Reviews & Critical Essays on/about women authors and Fiction &
Poetry *by* women writers for Women Writers: A Zine (an E-Journal).
Women Writers has been "live" for one year, and in that time has received
critical acclaim, and is rated one of the top 100 sites by and for women on
the Internet, as well as receiving over 26,000 visitors, from both U.S. and
international circles. We feature critical debate about women authors, and
provide a forum for publication for new contemporary women writers.
The site includes scholarship, links, resources and original fiction/poetry.
We have a more "academic" flavor than the other Literary forums out there,
and seek to actively promote discussion/learning about women's literature.
Check us out at: <http://www.womenwriters.net/ >before submitting samples,
and then, if you're interested in writing for the site, send an essay that
you might consider publishing on a women writer, a book review (women
authors only, please), or an essay on any aspect of woman's literature to
the editor. Length may vary; shoot for between 200 and 1500 words....
Submissions that make use of Internet resources (links to other websites)
will be particularly well received.
See general guidelines for submission of scholarly articles at: <
