The PG CWWN is a free and thriving research community, and we invite all postgraduate students whose research is concerned with the work of contemporary women writers to get involved.

The network hosts a wide variety of networking and training events for PGRs and ECRs working the field of contemporary women’s writing  including the flagship biennial conference. You can find out more about our forthcoming events, as well as all of the previous network events, here.

We would also like to encourage postgraduate students to contribute to our blog. We are seeking book reviews, calls for papers, conference reports, interviews, author features and short critical pieces. If you feel you have something suitable to submit, or if you would simply like to discuss ideas for contributions with us, please send an email to

In order to keep up to date with events, CFPs and other announcements, please subscribe to our mailing list.  If you have  an event or opportunity that is of interest to PGR/ECRs working in the field of CWW then please email us at and we will circulate it on our mailing list. The network is run by a steering group of postgraduate research students who work  in the field of  contemporary women’s writing. You can find out more about the current steering group here.
