“A woman with a voice is, by definition, a strong woman.

But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.”

—Melinda Gates

Maria Jane Jewsbury was a Manchester-based writer who made a name for herself at the turn of the early 19th century through poems, fiction, literary and educational prose.

In her time, she was a well-regarded poetess and prose contributor to the Manchester Gazette and later the Athenaeum, as well as her prolific writings in literary annuals.

Maria Jane Jewsbury was later on known as Maria Jane Fletcher. She was born on the 25th of Oct,1800 . Being an English writer, poet, and reviewer her Phantasmagoria, contained poetry and prose.


While raising her brothers and sisters, she'd written the Manchester Gazette in 1821.

Through its editor Dilke, she began writing for the Athenaeum in 1830. With her husband, she sailed for India, but she kept up a journal and had poetry printed in the Athenaeum as The Oceanides. By the time she consequently developed an interest in writing, a piece of prose fiction entitled The Three Histories that contemplates women’s writing lives, and The Oceanides, a long poetic sequence that reflects her journey.
