She Writes Blogger Ball

This weekend marks the She Writes blogger meet-and-greet, and this post is by way of saying hello. I’m a freelance writer, and my work has appeared in everything from The Smithsonian Magazine to Bookslut to The Missouri Review to My forthcoming pieces include an article on feminist YA literature (no, WSJ, not all YA is filled with “depravity”) for a Canadian magazine.   I also curate Women Doing Literary Things, an essay series featuring bookish women writing on the topic of gender and literature. I now host WDLT as a weekly feature on She Writes as well.

This blog features book reviews and commentary on literary happenings. My primarily interest is fiction (with an emphasis on feminism and race-related issues), but I read almost Everything. Kind folk would call my blog eclectic; most would say it lacks focus. Please wander around and leave your comments!

  1. Hello Nina,

    We’ve “met” already, but I didn’t realize that when I hopped on here from SheWrites. This seems as good an opportunity as any to say I haven’t forgotten I was going to write something for you, but I’ve been rather overtaken by events the past few months. bear with me?

    All the best,

  2. I LOVE eccentricity!

  3. This is a great introduction. You do a lot for literature.

    • Thank you, Nana, and I must return the compliment (with interest) to you! Your blog has educated me not just about African literature, but about literature in general..

  4. I love fiction books too. It give you an opportunity to escape from the world for a while and let your imagination float. So I hope people will give some great tips for a good book.

  5. I love the way you capitalize Everything, as in what you read. Nice.
    Also, Women Doing Literary Things is a gem.
    Thank you for that.
    I look forward to reading more here and there.
