Summary/Abstract: "Wielkopolski alfabet pisarek", the first literary alphabet in Poland devoted to female writing, consists of forty-nine profiles of women authors creating and living in different periods, from the medieval to modern times. A conceptual idea of female authors-editors, namely Ewa Kraskowska and Lucyna Marzec, realizes a feminist idea of locality, in this case, Great Polishness, that is becoming a place of radical opening, but also a dividing line for female writing. A literary image of the region, derived from "Wielkopolski alfabet pisarek", show the space of dynamic variety that is not and should not be a destination place of all considerations, but just their beginning.
