Today, I’ll be promoting another awesome blog/website that primarily supports women in the writing industry. Their posts span to many different topics all revolved around women writers! Here’s their ezine if you’re interested!
WOW! promotes the communication between women writers, authors, editors, agents, publishers and readers. Stay up-to-date on writer’s markets, events, author interviews, and more! We are dedicated to helping you achieve your writing dreams.
The diversity of articles, book reviews, and interviews have been an amazing resource for women writers and those who want to support them. My favorite thing about following this blog is the writing tips as I feel they represent and support my struggles as an indie author self-publishing.
Why would women writers need this type of representation?:
For myself, and other readers who love romance, we might not notice the lack of female writers in our field. Romance is almost exclusively a genre for women (even if men read and write romance as well, and do a great job of it too). We usually don’t realize the disproportional support men receive over women in the writing world.
According to VIDA (Women in Literary Arts) and Huffington Post, major book reviewers cover up to four times as much men’s books over women’s books. Men win more literary awards and books about men get more attention. Many writers have said their influences have been more likely to be male than classic female writers.
How can supporting WOW! help?:
WOW! is an awesome resource to find women writers you might find interest in. Check out their website. They have useful articles on the craft of writing and plenty of in-depth interviews, book reviews, and promos! If you’re a woman writer, you might even be able to find some events worth participating in. Supporting WOW! helps support women writers who deserve it! 🙂
