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
