         Subject: Women Writers Online for Women's History Month

In celebration of Women's History Month, the Women Writers Online
collection will be freely accessible during the month of March 2007
at http://www.wwp.brown.edu. WWO contains a fascinatingly varied
range of early women's writing: obscure religious prophecy,
midwifery, political satire, long melodramatic novels and lyric
poetry, witty social commentary and philosophical reflection, dramas
both farcical and tragic, and travel narratives from places as
far-flung as Burma and Texas.

Women Writers Online is a full-text collection of early modern
women's writing in English, encoded in TEI/XML and published using
the Philologic search engine developed at the University of Chicago.
The collection is developed by the Women Writers Project at Brown
University, founded in 1988 by faculty in an effort to increase the
visibility and availability of women's writing for teaching and
research. The project's research focuses on the challenges of using
detailed TEI markup to represent early printed books, and on issues
of digital scholarly communication.

In 2007-2008, the WWP is conducting an NEH-sponsored series of
seminars on scholarly text encoding with TEI. For more information on
this series, please see http://www.wwp.brown.edu/encoding/seminars/index.html

Your feedback and thoughts are welcome! Enjoy the collection.

Best wishes, Julia
