Women Writers, Women, Books is an online literary magazine by and about contemporary women writers.
Women Writers, Women, Books at www.booksbywomen.org was launched in 2011 to be another platform for contemporary women writers and authors around the world writing in English. Our mission is to encourage and promote the visibility of women writers. We are particularly interested in the edges, the intersections between genres, nationalities, languages, arts, cultures… We are interested in giving opportunities to unknown writers to be published, as well as publishing posts by well known authors. Though the website name is booksbywomen.org, contributors do not have to have published a book, or even be writing a book to be considered. The only criteria is that she be a woman who writes, and that her post be written for our audience specifically, that it be well-written and interesting to read.
If you are a woman writer, submitting your work to Women Writers, Womens Books is an opportunity for you see your writing published in a reputable online magazine. If you are a reader, there is cornucopia of writing in the magazine for you to enjoy 🙂
