Women writers who have influenced me

August 17, 2008

Louise Gluck, Anne Stevenson, Eavan Boland, Paula Meehan, Virginia Woolf and Elizabeth Barrett Browning would be among those women writers who have meant a great deal me as a woman writer. It would be great to hear about other influences from women writers out there.
