FemFics: New Digital Project (or, please help Capulett not fail her degree)


No pressure.

 

Hello!

I am in my final year of an English and Creative Writing/Journalism Degree. For my final Creative Writing module I have been given the task to create a narrative through a digital platform. After much deliberation I have decided I want to use this power for GOOD and embark on a new, zine-esque enterprise that I am provisionally calling FemFics.

Because I have no techy know how, FemFics will be be a tumblr account guised as a zine about...FEMINISM.

This is where you all come in, (hopefully.) You are the most talented, well informed and unique bunch of humans that I know. What I need is content that can be about anything in the world of feminism, (or not, I don't even mind!). I'm looking for short stories (around 1,000 words), flash fiction, articles, poetry, crafty ideas, opinion pieces, outfit posts - pretty much anything you want!

I will be (a very relaxed) editor for the website (which does not yet exist, want to get content done first) as well as contributor.

Deadline for submissions will be April 3rd, but I can extend it if needed :)

 

I would really, really appreciate some help on this and can't think of any better folks to ask.

I'm happy to write you a little something! Will wait until you make some more suggestions of what so that I don't write something useless.

Yay! Things and people!

like, I am just looking for as much diverse content as possible. Short submissions sent to email is great and if you want to do anything a bit different, I'm fine with that too.

I'm thinking intersectionality in feminism, gender, mental health, physical health, work, lifestyle, how to guide. Really anything you feel like producing! I know its really broad but I just want a big of range of contributions as possible!

I have one or two things written for SPARK that I ended up never submitting. If I get my computer set up anytime soon I'll happily edit those and send them on :3 I kind of want to write something more relevant to who I am now as a feminist/person, though, so I will have a think xx

I shall try and think up a way of doing the outfit post one, perhaps a kind of genderfluid based thing? And obviously if I come up with anything else I shall send it your way. Actually, I have some ideas also some pictures I took for a college project on gender.

I keep wanting to do something around feminism and being a stay-at-home mum. Having a choice because Feminism and having a choice because Money. Or something like that.

I'm writing a piece for a mate's blog which will mainly be about the need for women-only spaces (obviously for *anybody* who identifies as a woman - I just feel the need to clarify that, because sometimes you hear of people setting up women-only spaces for 'women-born' people, which is gross and transphobic). I would be more than happy to submit it to you, but I'm not sure if it would be okay if it were published elsewhere. If it were a problem, I could alter the original piece a little bit so that what I submit to you isn't a carbon copy. What do you think?

edit: oops, just noticed the deadline was yesterday. I'm starting this piece today and hope to have it done by Monday at the very latest!

I'm typing mine the now (sorry, I honestly thought you had said April 4th as deadline). I'm swithering between it being an opinion piece (noone has Feminist choice to stay at home unless they have luxury of a high earning partner) and a straight forward comparison...I keep getting annoyed at statistics so I see it being an opinion piece.

Every time I say opinion piece I think of the scene in Almost Famous "it's a think piece. About a mid-level band struggling with their own limitations in the harsh face of stardom."

Oh dear, I forgot all about this, I'm sorry :( I'm not in a great headspace right now so I really don't know if I can offer you anything aside from deep dark complicated opinion crap. I'll try to get in something small though, I really want to help you not fail your degree!
