The article presents 15 women authors debuting in Vilnius between 1800 and 1822. Their initial literary works were published mostly in the Vilnius papers 'Dziennik Wilenski' (Vilnius Daily) and 'Tygodnik Wilenski' (Vilnius Weekly). The authoresses made their debuts at different ages, being between 15 and 59 years old. Writing fables and satires (Placyda Potanska, Antonilla Modzelewska, Felicja Joanna Malikowska), tragedies (Tekla Wroblewska), descriptive poems and synonyms (Tekla Krasinska), they mostly continued the literary traditions of classicistic epoch. The writers (e.g. Panna M..., Emilia Felinska, Paulina Siwicka, Placyda Potanska) also translated well-known poems from other languages - Latin, French, Italian, and German. While composing reflective and lyric poems (e.g. elegies by a poet known as T. K.) and novels (Anna Mostowska), they joined in the pre-Romantic trend of the epoch. They mostly wrote to satisfy their hearts. Only some of them dreamt of literary carrier but it was Anna Mostowska who for a while achieved it.
