You’ve read the essay – THANK YOU – and it landed with you. Maybe you’ve got something to say.
I’m really hoping you’ve got a lot to say.
I’m hoping we can popularize the concept that time is a feminist issue so we start treating it as that rather than an individual failing.
And so, a digital anthology we can share far and wide.
But I’ve got to confess: there’s no funding attached to this project and no budget. It’s just me. I’m doing this off the side of my desk/kitchen table/in virtual community. With you.
Here are the parameters what I’m hoping we can do together…
Let’s put together an anthology of creative work – essays, collages, images, memes, multi-media, what-have-you – by a diverse group of women on the topic that time is a feminist issue.
My feminism is intersectional and I’m specifically seeking and enthusiastically inviting works that articulate these realities.
I’m soliciting submissions that feel more like essays than blog posts (longer is better; 1,000 word minimum) and are *not* how-to-hack-your-schedule in nature. There is an avalanche of that kind of content already; and those partial, individual solutions erase the collective nature of the problem.
Other than that, I’m keen to see creative approaches to the topic. Embrace it. Take it apart. Elaborate. Refine it. Problematize it. Show how it’s lacking and what also needs to be considered. Have fun with it.
Pieces are due Monday, February 15, 2016. (Please share with me as a Google doc.)
I’ll then edit and assemble the anthology and release it for free in March, ideally on International Women’s Day. I’m hoping that the contributing authors and artists will share it far and wide with their networks, too.
If Time is a Feminist Issue speaks to you, and the timeline works for you, I hope you’re able to contribute.
And now, it’s on. Pitch me! firstname.lastname@example.org
