Read about more than eight hundred writers, their lives and works. You can filter the writers’ list based on nationality. or you can use the timeline to follow Nordic women writers through the past thousand years and see who were born when, and how many centuries separate the Swedish Birgitta of Vadstena from the Danish Adda Ravnkilde.
You will also, where available, find links to free online versions of works written by the authors; information on works by and about the authors from Nordic libraries - and, naturally, links to articles from the History of Nordic Women’s Literature that treat of the writers and their works.
