The Celebration of Women Writers links to a wide variety of on-line resources, most of them at other sites. Sites for writers groups include biographical pages for members as well as useful resources and contacts. Academic and special-interest sites focus on particular groups, often both men and women. There is lots of interesting information out there, in addition to the biographies and books that are the focus of the Celebration. Explore further in our list of Specialty Collections.
While the primary focus of the Celebration is to link to resources in English, we hope to make people more aware of the rich variety of writers who come from other countries, many of whom write in other languages. Their works are often widely translated and read. Writers who lived in more than one country may be included in multiple listings. A writer who lived primarily in one country, but wrote works relevant to another country, may also be listed under both.

In some cases, authors who live in a particular country may be identifiable as members of an ethnic subgroup. In other cases, members of an ethnic group may live in more than one country. Listings by ethnic group are a new addition to the Celebration, so our information is currently quite limited. If you know of writers who should be identified as members of these groups, please let us know.
