Share your pictures, stories, and other digitized content with the Literary Women of The Blue Mountains online exhibit!

This is an evolving biographical resource of English-language women writers who published before 2000. These women all share a connection having lived some part of their lives in the area currently known as the Town of The Blue Mountains.

We are seeking your help!
