Reviews features must-read writing in all genres. Our focus is feminist writing, often works found off the best seller lists. Reviews should be thoughtful analyses of a book, going well beyond a mere summary and the reviewer’s opinion of it. Most wanted: niche publishers, e-published, self-published – written by women whose lives we’ve never imagined before. Good writing is not at the top of our list of requirements for a good book. A new story is. We also look at reviews of movies, music, plays – reviews of any work created by other women.

Style guide — All writers will be held to the writing standards delineated in the Moondance Style Guide, which is largely based on standard writing practices.
