With the Internet growing to include more than just chat and xxx sites,
there's plenty of room for even academia! There seems to be a growth of
literature and literary criticism websites that cater to academics,
undergraduates, and interested readers alike, so let's jump on the
bandwagon! I am interested in papers from grad students as well as
professional scholars.

A PhD student, (me) who will be at Texas A & M soon, is creating a
webpage called "Domestic Goddesses: AKA Scribbling Women." The URL for
the site is check it out
before you submit.

The site includes some biography, but the main intent is to collect
literary criticism of these somewhat under represented writers. I hope
to create a sort of E-Journal with a number of different viewpoints and

I am looking for papers, from 3-40 pages, discussing the literature
and/or lives of:

Louisa May Alcott, Kate Chopin, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Willa Cather,
Sarah Orne Jewett, and Edith Wharton.

The types of papers I have so far range from an MA thesis to a short,
informal, 3 page presentation. Dust off your old conference papers and
send them to me!

The site does not seek to be an "end all, be all" of authoritative
criticism, but it DOES mean to contribute carefully and meaningfully to
the literary discourse surrounding a group of compelling writers who
have shaped American Literature, for better or worse.

Send your papers via E-mail, enclosed in the letter or as attached MS
Word (.doc) or Word Perfect (.wpd) or simple text (.txt) documents.
