Help Vela Celebrate Unsung Women Writers!


It’s rare for female writers to receive recognition when it’s due.

In light of International Women’s Day, Vela Magazine is collecting suggestions for its “Great Nonfiction by Women” List.

We want to know which women writers you like “best,” who you think belongs on those reading lists and what works you wish got more attention. Sure, we all love Joan Didion, but who are her literary daughters and granddaughters writing the essay?
