Make your resolution to be an F-Word writer
Megan Stodel // 26 December 2015
As we’ve done in the past, we’re looking for people to write for us as monthly guest bloggers. That means you have a month, during which you can blog about any feminist-related thing you want on The F-Word! There aren’t strict rules; we’d like it if bloggers were able to post once a week or more, but recognise that this isn’t possible for everybody and are understanding about individual circumstances. The main thing is that you have stuff to say and we have a platform for you to say it.
You’ll get help and guidance from one of the team and you don’t need to have experience blogging, knowledge about posting or perfect English. You also don’t have to blog under your real name if you’d prefer not to.
Contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested, either to apply or to find out more. To apply, let us know a bit about yourself and the sorts of things you would be interested in writing about.
We’re open to anyone who applies but are particularly interested in views, topics and perspectives that are currently under-represented on the blog, particularly intersectional perspectives. This could be older women, disabled women, working class women, sex workers, women of minority ethnicities (including Black, Asian, migrant or refugee women and women of dual or multiple ethnic heritage), trans* women, lesbian, gay, bisexual or queer women, male feminists and/or socialist feminists or just someone keen to write about about a topic that you think we should feature more frequently. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list – please don’t be put off from emailing us if you’re interested but don’t identify with the perspectives above, particularly if you feel your perspective is currently under-represented in the feminist blogosphere.
The F-Word is an online magazine about and for contemporary UK feminism so we are concentrating on contributions relating to this. Contributions are encouraged from UK feminists, people living in the UK, or UK feminists currently living elsewhere. If you are unsure about this you can email us to check.
We can’t promise a slot to everyone – we’ll try to set a programme that is as varied as possible. 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.
And although you’re welcome to get in touch any time if you’re interested in writing for us, we’ll be deciding the monthly bloggers for the next little while after 15 January, so send your application by then to be considered for that.
Finally, a reminder that outside of the monthly guest blogging programme, everyone is still very welcome to submit features, reviews and one-off guest blog posts at any time to The F Word as normal; please see here for more details.
