The Emory Women Writers Resource Project is a collection of edited and unedited texts by women writing from the 17th century through the early 20th century. These texts come from France, Great Britain, and the United States of America. Various types of sources are included, such book, drama, essay, letters, memoir, novel, periodical, poetry, prose, and speech. About 100.000 pages were encoded, from hundreds of literary texts.

The material is divided into various categories:

  • Genre fiction
  • Early modern through the 18th century
  • Early 20th century literature
  • World War I poetry
  • Native American
  • Abolition, freedom, and rights
  • Women’s advocacy

Basic and advanced search is possible for the collection as a whole and for the subcollections. In addition, there are various browse categories, such as ethnicity, genre, geography, and period.

Texts are shown in modern edition. Notes are provided.
