Summary/Abstract: The text aims at showing the results of a study on women’s role in the Bulgarian literary field. The paper puts an emphasis on the Women Writers Club, a female organization that existed between 1930 and 1944 and was mainly active in the field of modern literature and culture. The conclusions were drawn on the basis of a number of public records, such as The Club’s minute book and The Women Club rules, as well as many publications in the periodical press concerning the Club’s activities. Discussed in the paper are those mechanisms through which female writers were included in those events that were important in terms of cultural field’s transformation into autonomous and professional field. Also, examined in the paper are the issues of power and literature, the relations between the state and the cultural institutions, and the way the cultural capital was divided and transformed in the modern Bulgarian state.
