The essay is perhaps one of the most generous forms of writing. Generous in that you can make it anything you want. You can make it as personal as your own sense of privacy allows, or you can make it as broad and free-ranging as your interests dictate.
The essays featured in VisibleWomanOnline will do just that. Essays will cover a wide range of topics--nothing is of limits and we welcome submissions from our readers.
A good essay must have this permanent quality about it; it must draw its curtain round us, but it must be a curtain that shuts us in, not out.
- Virginia Woolf
