Dear all,

We are delighted to announce that both Orlando: Women's Writing in the British
Isles from the Beginnings to the Present
(orlando.cambridge.org) and Women Writers Online
(wwp.northeastern.edu/wwo) will once again be
free during March, in celebration of Women's History Month.

Orlando is an online cultural history generated from the lives and works of
women writers. At present, it contains: 1,413 author entries (1,117 British
women writers, 178 male writers, 177 other women writers (listed twice if their
nationality shifted); 13,794 free-standing and 28,807 embedded chronology
entries; 29,479 bibliographical listings; 2,749,854 tags; and 9,038,958 words
(exclusive of tags). More than 31,000 people and 7,500 organizations are
mentioned or discussed somewhere in the textbase. For more on getting started

The Women Writers Online collection includes more than 400 texts written and
translated by women, first published between 1526 and 1850 (no credentials are
required to access WWO; you can search and read the texts in the collection at:
wwo.wwp.northeastern.edu/WWO). In addition to WWO, the Women Writers Project 
also has several publications that are always open access, including Women 
Writers in Review (wwp.northeastern.edu/review), a collection of close to 700 
reviews of and responses to works by the authors in WWO, and Women Writers in 
Context (wwp.northeastern.edu/context), a
collection of essays exploring topics related to early women's writing; we
also have a growing collection of teaching materials
(wwp.northeastern.edu/wwo/teaching/pedagogical-dev.html). For
more on getting started with WWO, see this blog post:

Please feel free to contact us if you would like more information about any of
these publications; the Orlando Project can be reached by email at
