Writing for Women's Review of Books
Now in its 36th year, Women's Review of Books has a solidity and depth that is unique to print publications. Its feminist mission is to publish reviews that draw on rich reservoirs of knowledge—based in organizing, discipline-based research, and personal experience—in the service of action and consciousness.
Please note that most WRB writers are experienced reviewers, academics, or journalists and that we do not assign book reviews to friends, relatives, enemies, colleagues, or blurbers of the book's author.
If you plan on sending pitches, please include 1) a paragraph about your credentials, 2) one line about the type of work you are interested in focusing on (i.e. poetry, nonfiction, etc.), and 3) a short sample of an already-published review. Writers are compensated $100 for each review. Send information to: email@example.com
Due to the volume of interest, if your email does not contain the components listed above, we will not respond.
