        Subject: Women Writers Online: Free in March 2019 & Teaching Resources

Dear all,

Many of you will already 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 400 texts written and translated by women, 
first published between 1526 and 1850 (for the current list of texts in WWO see here: 
http://www.wwp.northeastern.edu/wwo/texts/titleURLs.html). 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 (http://wwp.northeastern.edu/wwo/teaching/). We have also been piloting 
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:


These include assignments that use not only WWO but also Women Writers in Review 
(http://wwp.northeastern.edu/review/), an open-access collection of around 600 
reviews, publication notices, and other documents that respond to texts by the 
authors in Women Writers Online.

By early 2019, we will be releasing a new resource on our WWO Lab that will 
support web-based explorations of relationships between words in the WWO collection, 
using word embedding models (for more on this project, see here:
