For Books' Sake
Founded in 2010, For Books’ Sake is the UK webzine dedicated to promoting and celebrating writing by women. An intelligent but irreverent online community and magazine, we feature books by and for independent women.
Systemic and institutionalised sexism continues to be a problem in publishing, media and beyond. In more than forty years of the Booker Prize, there have been only fourteen women winners, and in mainstream media book reviews, an average of only 30% feature books by women.
Our aim is to provide a dedicated platform for readers and writers alike. With daily news, reviews, essays, features and interviews, we shine spotlights on classic and contemporary writing by both iconic and upcoming women authors, from reading recommendations to in-depth analysis.
We’ve been featured in print, on TV and radio, curate a national live events programme, and have events at arts and literature festivals across the UK.
