The Lowell Offering
1840 October – 1845 December

The Lowell Offering (1840-1845) was written and published by working women of Lowell, Massachusetts.  This monthly magazine was organized by the Reverend Abel Charles Thomas (1807-1880) pastor of the First Universalist Church.  From October 1840 to March 1841, it consisted of articles that emerged from many of the improvement circles or literary societies.  Later, it then became broader in its scope and received more spontaneous contributions.  From October 1842 until December 1845, it was edited by Harriot F. Curtis (1813-1889), and Harriet Farley (1817-1907).
 
 

The New England Offering
1848 – 1850 March

The New England Offering (1848-1850) was a continuation of The Lowell Offering.  Harriet Farley continued as editor, soliciting prose and poems not only from working women of Lowell, but throughout New England.
