The California Journal of Women Writers is an online journal featuring original reviews and criticism of women’s literature from across North America, as well as interviews with authors, commentary on critiques published elsewhere, and the occasional post boasting literary theory. We do not focus on any one type of literature, as long as the text is written by a female author and is of interest to the TCJWW editor and/or contributing writers.
Our intent is to provide a space for enthusiastic dialogue supporting a wide variety of women writers. We invite our readers to unite, discuss, and join our conversation with insightful comments. This is a space devoted to fostering and enhancing the visibility of North American female authors, and narrowing the wide gender gap found in discussions in the literary world.
If you would like to see us review a specific book or interview a particular author, you may email your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
