(In)Scribing Gender explores the creative processes of women writing fiction, non-fiction and poetry from multiple cultural contexts, in different styles, and within and across various disciplines. In these essays, established and emerging female writers from diverse backgrounds expound on topics such as creative inspiration, locating the muse, the limitations and liberties associated with categorization and labels (academic, institutional, social, literary, or other), conducting literary or scholarly research as a woman, cultural perceptions of female writers, female/feminine literature, and gendered representations. This anthology examines how gender shapes an author's creative process and how gender tints the lens through which literary and/or academic audiences view a writer's work. In both academic and literary circles, specific labels (and their attendant expectations) are often foisted upon, or in some cases chosen by, female writers. One of the goals of this anthology is to begin to deconstruct these culturally specific (in terms of both literary and global cultures) categories, both imagined and real. In this vein, (In)Scribing Gender encourages dialogue between international female writers and provides a global readership with the opportunity to more fully comprehend the intricacies of the creative process as it applies specifically to women who write within and across categories and disciplines.
