Women’s Fiction Day is coming on June 8, 2022! Women’s fiction is near and dear to my heart, so of course I said I’d participate again this year. I’m sharing the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA) press release below so you know all about the day and what it entails. (And note: THERE WILL BE A GIVEAWAY! See below)
Women’s Fiction Writers Association Celebrates 4th Annual Women’s Fiction Day on June 8
Day Promotes Authors and Genre that Consistently Tops Bookseller Charts
June 1, 2022 – The Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA), a non-profit association dedicated to supporting authors of women’s fiction, will hold its 4th annual Women’s Fiction Day on June 8, 2022.
Women’s Fiction Day celebrates women’s fiction authors, novels, publishers, book sellers, and most importantly, readers who appreciate women’s fiction and the power of a great story. This year for Women’s Fiction Day, members across the country will hold book signings to engage and connect with readers.
“Authors love connecting with readers, and the last couple of years have been difficult all around,” said WFWA President Jacki Kelly. “Seeing a glimmer of hope on the horizon, this year we’re working with our members to celebrate Women’s Fiction Day both in person and online.”
WFWA is working with its 1,800 members across the country and internationally to hold a day of book events both online and in person on June 8.
What Is Women’s Fiction?
Women’s fiction is a writing genre that includes layered stories in which the plot is driven by the main character’s emotional journey. The stories can be contemporary or historical, and may have magical, mystery, thriller, romance, or other elements.
