Women Doing Literary Things (WDLT) is a website that features posts by women in the literary world. It was launched on International Women’s Day in March 2011. A new post—and new voice—is added each week.
Kingston Young Adult novelist Y.S. Lee told me about this compelling website, and I thought it would be fun to get involved. It’s been really interesting reading the essays by women authors, poets, novelists, librarians, and journalists. Niranjana (Nina) Iyer, who is a Canadian freelance writer, came up with this fantastic idea and maintains the website. I love the way her site brings together women from so many different fields within publishing, and diverse geographical regions as well. It’s a real coming together of women’s voices. I find it so rewarding to share stories and experiences; it’s so reaffirming. All the talented contributors have a passion for reading and writing. I strongly encourage you scroll through and read the other fantastic pieces. There is a lot of food for thought in the eloquent, engaging, and often provocative essays.
You can find my submission here on the Women Doing Literary Things website. It was just posted yesterday!
