Maine Women Writers Collection

The Maine Women Writers Collection (MWWC) is a permanently endowed special collection of published and unpublished literary, cultural, and social history sources by and about Maine women. Among its goals are to honor and celebrate the work of new, established, and historical women writers, as well as to foster archives-based scholarly work in women’s and gender studies.

The collection includes rare and contemporary volumes, manuscript material, memorabilia, artifacts and artwork documenting Maine women's engagement with regional and national concerns, from the nineteenth century to the present. Jointly overseen by a curator and the Dorothy M. Healy Professor of Literature, the Collection is housed in a state-of-the-art facility and is dedicated as a national Literary Landmark.
