We offer here a brief list of women writers whose work has made an impression on our lives. In the future, we will also include several recommendations from readers of the newsletter. If you would like to send us a recommendation for consideration,* email the director, Sandy Longhorn, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please submit only one recommendation, including the author’s name and one title. Remember, we hope to support writers in all genres and styles from mass market to literary or academic, from bloggers to journalists. Help us spread the word about fantastic women writers of today or yesterday.
*The Executive Committee will make the final decision on which titles to feature.
