Announcing an updated call for papers to the Award Winning Website
"Domestic Goddesses: AKA Scribbling Women." The URL for the site is
http://lonestar.texas.net/~kwells/dg1.htm check it out before you submit.
(Or even if you don't submit-- constructive comments welcome!)

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

Louisa May Alcott, Kate Chopin, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Willa Cather,
Sarah Orne Jewett, Edith Wharton, Charlotte Perkins Gilman and, soon to be
added: Susan Warner.
Particularly useful are guides to research (see the Gilman guide for

Eventually, we would also like to add more minority writers, such as Harriet
Jacobs and others-- papers on those authors could be added to the site in a
temporary link until the rest of the information is available. IF you have
a paper on authors besides the ones listed above, from the period 1830-1920,
contact kwells_at_texas.net for an inquiry, prior to submitting a paper.

The site includes biography, but the main intent is to collect literary
criticism of these somewhat under represented writers. The site has over
8000 hits, with readers from diverse backgrounds from high school students
to college professors. We have papers from professional scholars from
Universities across the country but would like to expand our authorship even

The site means to contribute carefully and meaningfully to the literary
discourse surrounding a group of compelling writers who have definitively
shaped American Literature. What is new about our criticism is, of course,
it is on the Internet! More and more, students are looking to the WWW to
find more than just commercial sites. Issues of possible plagiarism are
addressed on the site, and students/readers are carefully shown how to cite
their sources, via links to online citation guides.

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. Documents in
.rtf are also accepted.
