I have an essay in this, a feminist zine (i.e. an independently-minded, independently-financed magazine) called I HOPE YOU LIKE FEMINIST RANTS, edited by Abigail Tarttelin. It’s a platform for sharing feminist and women’s voices, and championing non-patriarchal journalism and art. Issue #3 is out this month, and available in London (Pages of Hackney), Los Angeles (Skylight Books), and Liverpool (News From Nowhere).
You can also order online using Paypal via email@example.com. All zines ordered this way come with beautiful stickers. Issues #1 and #3 are £4, issue #2 is a bumper issue on Motherhood and is £5. Please add post and packaging – UK £1, EU £2, International £3. Note your address and the issues you want in the notes section on paypal.
I have work coming out in some really nice places over the coming weeks. This blog post reads a bit like a list, so I apologise in advance for that!
An essay on sisterhood will be in the A Room of Our Own anthology, the book is raising money to keep the organisation’s website going so they can continue their valuable work.
Another essay, about my non-motherhood and choice to not become a parent, is in issue 2 of I Hope You Like Feminist Rants later in the summer. My writing on housework is in issue 1 of Rants, which you can purchase here.
My flash fiction Good Times, originally published in Slim Volume 1 : No Love Lost (2015), is published in CRUSHED, a book of writing and art on the subject of heartbreak is out this month (May 2016). Editor Charlotte Apsin is producing a zine to go with it.
I’ve got work in the University of Liverpool Centre For New & International Writing’s journal, on page 18, published last week.
I was made up to have a flash fiction, The Other Woman, included as part of Hayley Webster’s All The Words book festival also last week, you can read it here.
I wrote about LightNight here, and Liverpool Biennial here, for Getintothis.
52% starts its summer break next month, I make my final appearance in this series in a fortnight. The next series starts in the Autumn!
That’s it, I think. For now…
I’m a panelist on BayTV‘s programme 52% tonight at 6pm. You can catch it on Freeview channel 8 on Merseyside and parts of Cheshire, plus I’m told that the good people of Birmingham can pick it up too.
The episode is repeated over the next fortnight and will be up on YouTube in a few days.
