Women in Literature: Blazing Literary Trails into the Future

by Mylene Almeida December 14, 2015 0 Comments

Women Writing on Vintage Typewriter

What a wonderful epoch to be a female writer. With the likes of J. K. Rowling and Isabel Allende blazing literary trails into the future, there is no better time to employ our female sensibilities in the art of writing and to imbue the field with all the passion and pizzazz that many of us possess. It behooves us to take full advantage of the opportunity, lest the wheels of faith spin once again into the realms of anonymity. Not too long ago (for what are 200 years in relation to the age of the universe) women cloaked their creativity through pen names; from A. M. Barnard to George Eliot, male pseudonyms are archaic representations of a field, and period, fraught with sexism and double standards. Heck, even Rowling, in what amounts to the 21st century, was told to utilize initials in order to attract a wider audience that would likely prefer a male author. The bravery of these wonderful women, coupled with the imposing grandiosity and courage of luminaries like Emily Dickinson and Jane Austen, has opened a world of possibility for many of us.

Women Writers Inspired Literary Prints

Ask yourself this question as you enter the New Year. Why not you? What prevents you from getting that heart pounding and those brain cells firing and pouring forth a melody of words; “perhaps you’ll never help a fainting robin unto its nest”, but if you can somehow, through effort and devotion, master the alchemy of words, then I assure you that you will not have lived in vain. Happy writing!
