What is The Chick Lit Nest?

🐦 It is a profile dedicated to promoting the Chick Lit/Women's Lit and Romantic Comedy genres. The Nest hopes to inspire other writers/readers to check out, embrace, and promote the genre that brought us CRAZY RICH ASIANS, WAITING TO EXHALE, BRIDGET JONES, and SEX IN THE CITY and so many more unforgettable books!

Chick Lit is fiction centered on female protagonists struggling to achieve their goals and often finding love along the way. For a more detailed description and history of the genre, read this essay:


The Chick Lit Nest aims to be your go-to spot for collaboration, discussion, and tips on how to write a better, break-out-the-champagne women's fiction story.


We occasionally publish PINK DANDELION QUARTERLY, a literary magazine devoted to chick lit, rom-com, and women's fiction. Check out our three awesome issues.
