Women's Lit Event 2014: SIGN-UPS!!!

Introducing Sign-Ups for the 2nd Annual Women's Lit Month @ Lost in Books!

March is Women's History Month and what better way to celebrate it than with event all about Women in Literature?  Whether it is about women authors or stories about strong females, this event aims to prove that women have not only rightfully come into their own, but that they are kicking ass and taking names. No damsels in distress here.  

I am looking for guest posts/reviews for next month.  There is a sign-up below if you are willing to participate (and no, you do not have to be female to write a guest post!)  We had great participation last year and I'd love to see it again this year!

So what might you be able to contribute?

  • Book reviews (either new or even that you've written in the past) that cover the women's suffrage movement, the feminist movement, women who speak their minds or just women ahead of their time (examples: Queen Elizabeth I, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Jane Eyre, Nefertiti, Amelia Earhart, Moll Flanders, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, etc.)
  • Guest posts/discussions about women authors who have made a name for themselves and for great female characters (Jane Austen, J.K. Rowling, etc.).
  • List your favorite heroines in literature and why you feel they made such an impact on you.
  • Write about how a woman author or a female character inspired you in real life.   Did reading Laurie Halse Anderson inspire you to fight back?  Did Maya Angelou make you feel empowered?  Did Hermione Granger make you unashamed of your love of books?  Did Judy Blume incite your lifelong love affair with reading?
  • Think of another idea that you believe will fit the event?  Let me know!
  • If you want to see posts from last year's event, click here!

Rules for participation are super simple:

  • Create a post or add the event button to your sidebar on your own blog that lets everyone know about the event and that links back here to your guest post (or you can include others' posts, too, of course!)  
  • Be sure to leave a comment or two on others' guest posts.
  • Above all, have fun writing your posts and enjoy the event!
