2016 Catalog of Authors Books Volume 25 president s message Doris Baker 2016 President, Women Writing the West Welcome to Women Writing the West and our 2016 Catalog of Authors Books. These pages will give you an idea of the variety and the sophistication of books written by WWW authors. The authors themselves are young(ish), old(er), published, unpublished, and write in nearly every genre of the literary spectrum. Willa Cather famously wrote, There are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before. The titles in this catalog tell those two or three stories in exciting new ways with new insights and from a western sensibility. WWW is an inclusive and supportive association of writers, editors, agents, publishers, and others who see the value in documenting, through fiction or non-fiction, the role of women in the American West. New members join today for the same reasons our founders established the group in 1994 for camaraderie, to share knowledge, frustrations and triumphs, and for encouragement both given and received. In addition to publishing an annual catalog, WWW supports male and female writers by holding a yearly conference where members come together to nurture their craft, expand their marketing savvy, and enjoy the company of like-minded authors. Conferences are held at locations throughout the West. The 2016 conference will be in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with the theme Enduring Spirits, Untold Stories. A highlight of the annual conference is the presentation of literary awards. The WILLA is named in honor of Willa Cather and awarded in seven categories for book-length works. The LAURA Short Fiction Awards, named to honor Laura Ingalls Wilder, recognizes fiction of fewer than 5,000 words written by WWW members. Each year, these awards grow in prestige and significance. Between conferences, members engage in lively discussions on a long-standing Yahoo Group listserv where questions are posed and answered, news is shared, and the WWW community connects. I encourage you to connect with our community by liking Women Writing the West on Facebook and visiting our website, WomenWritingtheWest.org. There you will find information about membership, activities, and the history of WWW. Please consider joining WWW. We re saving a place for you! the term women s west is borrowed from the ground-breaking book of the same title, edited by Susan Armitage and Elizabeth Jameson and published by the University of Oklahoma Press. That book and the subsequent flood of scholarly books on the same subject presented an entirely different view, literally a rediscovery, of women in the American West. More than a recognition that women played broader roles than being ranch wives or prostitutes, the new view of the Women s West speaks to the diversity of women of all cultures and all time periods. It acknowledges the rich variety of ways women responded to the western experience. The women s West is based on a tradition that includes such fine writers as Willa Cather, Mary Austin, B.M. Bower, Mari Sandoz, Dorothy Johnson, Juanita Brooks, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Helen Hunt Jackson. Today s writers who set their work in the West are creating a literary explosion said to be comparable to the Southern literary renaissance in the 1930s. Women Writing the West is open to all persons worldwide. Please join us. The membership form is on the back cover. Now, enjoy this latest collection of wonderful books written by members of Women Writing the West. This catalog is published annually as a service to our members, providing educational and industry information to our membership and those in the publishing community. Women Writing the West is a non-profit association of writers and other professionals writing and promoting the Women s West. Published by Women Writing the West 8547 E.
