Gender Studies Network: Women Writers Online – free access during March

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Women Writers Online will be free during March. This collection includes almost 400 texts written and translated by women, first published between 1526 and 1850. http://wwp.northeastern.edu/blog/free-march/

In addition to WWO, the Women Writers Project at Northeastern University also has several publications that are always open access, including:

  • Women Writers in Review: a collection of almost 700 reviews of and responses to works by the authors in WWO. WWiR is open access and linked with WWO, so that readers can easily navigate between both collections. http://wwp.northeastern.edu/review/
  • Women Writers in Context: a collection of essays exploring topics related to early women’s writing. WWiC provides core background information for the texts in WWO and WWiR, while highlighting shared themes and historical interconnections and helping readers to discover new works by women writers. http://wwp.northeastern.edu/context/
  • Teaching materials: the Women Writers Project has recently begun an initiative to partner with faculty on developing assignments and activities using WWO and WWiR. More information on the teaching partner program, along with an initial set of assignments here: http://wwp.northeastern.edu/wwo/teaching/pedagogical-dev.html
