Overview

NEWSWOMEN: TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF FRONT-PAGE JOURNALISM is an anthology of stellar work by 17 seventeen great female literary and investigative reporters whose newspaper writing has garnered awards over the past quarter century. Each chapter features a bio, a selected story, and an author's afterwords prepared especially for this book.

A large percentage of college and graduate school journalism students are women. Yet textbooks and resource material available is decidedly male-centric. Working together with the staff of The Riveter, a magazine and website dedicated to long-form nonfiction written by women, The Sager Group has responded to a demand for affordable, female-centric textbooks and /anthologies. Two more anthologies of literary long-form writing are upcoming.

NEWSWOMEN: TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF FRONT-PAGE JOURNALISM includes the work of women journalists who wrote for top newspapers and alternative weeklies during the golden age of newsprint journalism. Featured are: Edna Buchanan, Christine Brennan, Jacqui Banaszynski, Deborah Blum, Teresa Carpenter, Athelia Knight, Corinne Reilly, Lane DeGregory, Diana Henriques, Andrea Elliott, Amy Harmon, Julia Keller, Dana Priest, Anne Hull, Loretta Tofani, Christine Pelisek, and Eileen Welsome.

Newswomen is an excellent start to catch us up on where the women are and what
they've been doing all these years, namely, writing award-winning literary journalism
that can inspire our students."
--Nancy L. Roberts, Literary Journalism Studies
