CONSIDER MORE NOVELLAS
Thank you for Douglas Trevor’s article “Consider the Novella: Making the Case for a New Workshop Model” (September/ October 2017). I love reading novellas, and I recently shortened one of my novel manuscripts to novella length. I noticed, however, that all of the novellas Trevor mentions in his article are written by men. For several years I have been compiling a list of novellas written by and about women on Goodreads. I have also added women writers to the “List of Novellas” Wikipedia page. Some of my favorite novellas include
The Awakening by Kate Chopin, Phaniyamma by M. K. Indira, The Fifth Child by Doris Lessing, The Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers, The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa, and Madame de Treymes by Edith Wharton. Thanks for your great magazine!
