Jean M. Auel, Margery Kempe, Sylvia Plath, Julia Alvarez, Anne McCafferey, Julian of Norwich, Maya Angelou, Barbara Hambly, Mary Wollstonecraft, Karen Monteverdi, Shirley Jackson, Zora Neale Hurston, Mary Shelly, J.K. Rowling, Marie de France…I could go on for pages, yet women writers are overlooked or ignored in many facets of the literary community and that should not be. I have read something from each of the women I named and more. Women are as ground breaking, thought provoking and exciting storytellers as anyone out there. So I decided, with the help of a friend saying that women writers were not as good as men, to add a women author tab to my blog. Feel free to comment on anything and everything that you think or feel about your favorite woman writer.
A fellow graduate from Marylhurst University, Jessica Zisa, informed me that Emily Dickinson manuscripts are going to be put up online, yet there is some kind of controversy over it.
