To celebrate International Women’s Day, I thought I’d share two of my favourite websites dedicated texts written by women:
‘Woolf Online’: http://www.woolfonline.com/
This website provides contextual materials and free online access to a selection of Woolf’s texts. There are some fascinating ‘genetic editions‘ of Woolf’s works which chart how her books came into being from first drafts to publication.
‘Women Writers Project’: http://www.wwp.brown.edu/
This project brings together more than 300 texts written by women between 1450 and 1850, including political, philosophical, and scientific writing as well as religious material, poetry, drama, and fiction. There are also contextual essays and sample syllabi.
If you know of any other great resources on women’s writing let us know in the comments section below…
Also, what do you think of the term ‘women’s writing’?
