Women Writers Online is the database of the Women Writers Project (WWP), Brown University. The Women Writers Project is a long-term research project devoted to early modern women's writing and electronic text encoding. Its goal is to bring texts by pre-Victorian women writers out of the archive and make them accessible to a wide audience of teachers, students, scholars, and the general reader. The project supports research on women's writing, text encoding, and the role of electronic texts in teaching and scholarship.

Women Writers Online includes a subset called Renaissance Women Online. When complete, it will present a group of 100 WWP texts from the early modern period, together with introductions to the individual works and essays on the cultural context of the period.

Lists of included texts sorted by author, title, or date are available.

Coverage: 1400-1850
