Welcome to...
WikiProject Women Writers, a WikiProject dedicated to ensuring quality and coverage of biographies of women writers. Unfortunately, part of Wikipedia's Wikipedia:systemic bias is that women writers and their works are woefully underrepresented. Let's change that!


  • women writers
  • works by women writers
  • awards honoring women writers

Get involved[edit]

  • Tag the talk pages of relevant articles with the {{WikiProject Women writers}} banner so they can be automatically added to Category:WikiProject Women writers articles. See the Assessment page for further information.
  • Improve categorization of articles (see the category tree).
  • Create or translate a woman writer's biography; a redlinks list is maintained at Missing Articles List.
  • Expand or improve women writer biographies.
  • Cite edits with reliable sources. Content that isn't cited can be removed!
  • Remove templates from article pages after you successfully complete the task or fix the problem.
  • Requested tasks: Sometimes a larger cleanup activity needs a little more help than one editor can do. If you have a project that would be best completed with community help, add it here (please add tasks as bulleted (*) tasks so that they can be easily tracked below). This lists should not be for listing individual pages to work on: this is part of the reason for the article assessment system described elsewhere on this page. Rather, try to propose more systematic projects.
  • Find inspiration in example articles: The articles in the Featured article and Good article categories can provide examples of good layout and content coverage.

High Subject is very notable or significant within the study of women writers, women's literature or the public's perception of women writers. J.K. Rowling
Ursula K. Le Guin
British women's literature of World War I
Leslie Marmon Silko
Mid Subject is notable or significant within a specific scholarly community of interest or community of writing practices, or has broader cultural significance as a woman writer or women's literature, but may not necessarily have significant long lasting impact or impact outside the subset of interested peoples.

Low Subject is not very significant within the general study of women writers or literature, nor very important for specific communities or bodies of scholarship, but meets the basic requirements for notability. This category might include topics of particular notability to other projects, but not to the topic of Women writers and women's literature.
