Web Resources for Women Writers
Under construction -- please be sure to visit again.

Below you'll find web links for the authors and works we're reading this semester, as well as recommendations for further reading. Some sites are better than others; as always when using the web, evaluate not only the quantity of the information presented, but its quality (the source of that information or its sponsor, date uploaded, etc.).
