        Subject: Women Writers Project teaching partnerships (and free access in March 2022)

Dear colleagues,

Many of you will soon be planning your spring teaching and so we’re
writing now to confirm that Women Writers Online will be free for the
month of March, in celebration of Women’s History Month. This collection
includes more than 425 texts written and translated by women, first
published between 1526 and 1850. For the current list of texts in WWO
see here: We
also wanted to share some resources developed by our teaching partners,
and circulate a call for those who are interested in joining the
teaching partners program with the WWP.

If you’d like more ideas about using WWO in the classroom, we have a
growing set of resources on teaching with Women Writers Online,
including both assignments and syllabi
( We also have a program in
which teaching partners collaborate with us to create activities,
assignments, and syllabi. You can read more about the program and see
some of the materials developed by our partners here:
We would particularly welcome teaching partnerships that engage with
concepts of race and racialized identities. In addition to the texts
already in WWO, we will soon be publishing several texts that may be of
interest to teachers and researchers who are working with racial
identities, colonialism, and empire. These include Mary Prince's History
of Mary Prince, Betsey Stockton's Journal, Mary Rowlandson's The
Sovereignty and Goodness of God, Claire de Duras's Ourika, Anna Maria
Falconbridge's Two Voyages to Sierra Leone, and Elizabeth Hamilton's
Translation of the Letters of a Hindoo Rajah. A full list of forthcoming
texts is here: We would
welcome suggestions for other texts that we should add to the collection!
If you’re interested in becoming a teaching partner yourself or have
teaching ideas to share, please email us for more information
( If you’d like to work with Women Writers Online
prior to March, and you don’t have institutional access, we would be
happy to set up a trial (more details on WWO licensing and trials are
here: And finally, if you
have questions about any of the WWP’s publications, or suggestions for
texts that we should add to our collections, please don’t hesitate to
get in touch.

Thank you very much!

All our best,

Julia & Sarah
