Calling women of colour to guest blog
Lynne Miles // 5 April 2013
Following our call for guest bloggers towards the end of last year, we had a number of great people respond and have lined up a programme for most of the year based on those applications which we’re really excited about.
Nevertheless, we were concerned about the relative lack of applicants who were identifiably women of colour. We want to try to correct this, so we’ve reserved some spaces towards the end of 2013, and are putting out a second call to fill those slots.
If you’re a woman of colour who is British, living in Britain or writing with a British perspective who would be interested in a month-long guest blogging slot on The F Word blog please get in touch with me. Let me know a little bit about yourself, why you would like to blog and what sort of things you would like to blog about. Alternatively, if you would like to recommend someone else, please feel free to suggest them, with contact details if you have them.
Guests will be given support and guidance by an assigned ‘buddy’ from the collective. We have a written guide for guest bloggers explaning what’s what. You don’t have to have perfect English; what you have to say is more important than being a fancy writer.
We can’t promise a slot to everyone as we only have the capacity to support a given number of guest bloggers at one time. If you’ve emailed us in the past about being a guest blogger but haven’t heard anything then please do put your hand up again.
Everyone is still very welcome to submit features, reviews and one-off guest blog posts to The F Word as normal, please see here for more details.
