CON­SIDER MORE NOVEL­LAS

Poets and Writers - - Letters - JYOTSNA SREENI­VASAN ANA MARÍA GONZÁLEZ PUENTE

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!

Colum­bus, Ohio have to be­lieve that your story has a place in the world.
