Abstract

The purpose of this article is to fill some of the gaps in our knowledge of those women writers in the lower echelons of the literary world of mid-Victorian England. Through an examination of the resources of the Royal Literary Fund the paper aims to provide a portrait of the career paths and lives of women writers who depended on their literary skills for a living.
