Alternate Names Directory


Many writers are known by alternate names in addition to their preferred personal name. The Canadian Women Writing and Reading from 1950 (CanWWR) Project presently lists writers under their preferred personal name where known. This directory is designed to allow users to find the name a given writer is listed under by matching alternate names and group, band or collective names with an individual writer's preferred name.

Please use your browser's find function (control-F or command-F on your keyboard) to search for your desired writer, band, group or collective. For bands, groups or collectives, use the 'next' button to cycle through all members' listings. Once you have found the preferred name(s), please return to the alphabetical listing on the Writers page to locate her page.

If she is not in this directory, CanWWR may be unaware of her under the name you are searching. CanWWR is an ongoing project and is pleased to integrate both new writers and new information about already included writers as they are brought to our attention. Please see the bottom of the About the Project page for contact information.
