We’ve a meeting about the Swansea Feminist Network zine yesterday, where we decided an official title for the zine – Pandora Press! We’re looking for submissions for our first ever issue, which will be released in time for our Music Fundraiser at the end of July (details about the fundraiser here). The theme is OUR FEMINIST HEROES. Write about a feminist who inspires you – a politician, a relative, a musician, an actor, a philanthropist, a medic, a writer, a goddess, a good friend, anything you like! There’s more info on the kind of thing we’re looking for here. We’ve only had a few submissions so far, so please consider writing something for us!
We’ve also got an idea for a centrefold feature – we’ve got 5 questions that we’d like some of you guys to answer in less than 50 words, and all answers will be published anonymously. Even if you don’t intend to write a full-length submission, we’d love to hear your answers to some of these questions!
a) Who is your hero?
b) What makes a feminist hero?
c) Sum up, in one word, what feminism means to you.
d) Who first inspired you to explore feminism?
e) What is your favourite feminist book?
The deadline is 17th July, so get writing girls!
