A few things to note:
• Most Women’s Review writers are experienced reviewers with expertise in their fields who can write review-essays that are lively, thought-provoking, and accessible to a broad audience of interested readers—and who can do it on a deadline. We welcome new ideas, expertise, and creativity; we discourage jargon. Readers may have to struggle with your ideas—but not with your sentences.
• Women’s Review has high standards but does not pay very well: we give a $100 honorarium to tenured faculty members; everyone else gets 14 cents per published word.
• Women’s Review of Books welcomes suggestions of books to review (and feedback of all kinds, actually).
• Women’s Review does not assign book reviews to friends, relatives, enemies, colleagues, or blurbers of the book author.
