If you write in the Women's Fiction genre, this is a community for you. Founded in 2013, WFWA is a diverse international community of aspiring, debut, and multi-published authors. Our non-profit organization is led by dedicated volunteers, all of whom are writers.

What is Women’s Fiction Day?

Women’s Fiction Day was established by WFWA in 2019 to celebrate the authors, stories, readers, bookstores, and fans of the women’s fiction genre.

For Writers
Whether you write women’s fiction that delves into family dynamics, female friendships, job challenges, or long-buried secrets, or you write lighter reads or denser narratives, WFWA wants to promote you and your fabulous books


Here’s How to Celebrate

  • Here’s a list of Women’s Fiction Day Giveaways. All books are Women's Fiction titles with the subgenre listed. Entries are submitted at each donor's website.
