CENTERFOLD ZINECALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Centerfold is a new, bimonthly, UK-based zine based on feminism and politics. I’m currently in the process of putting together the first issue, which should be released at the end of February, and am looking for both submissions and potential interviewees. I’m a photography graduate hoping to get into journalism and will be using Centerfold as a way to publish articles and interviews, but am also looking to accept submissions and/or create features based on upcoming feminist artists or writers.
SUBMISSIONS
Must be serious work based on feminism and feminist theory.
Trans-exclusionary radical feminists are NOT welcome.
Art, photography, prose, articles, and poetry are all accepted.
ANGRY GIRLS
Angry Girls is a segment of the zine that will consist of interviews with feminist artists, activists, zinesters, organisers, musicians, and writers. Being an interviewee means you must be willing to be photographed and interviewed for the zine, as well as providing samples of your work for your spread. You must be based in the UK and female/female-identifying/genderfluid, and must either be 16 or over, or be able to provide parental consent. Again, trans-exclusionary radical feminists are seriously not welcome.

The sequel to Ugly Girls - Angry Girls.
A zine made up of portraits of feminists alongside a short interview about what makes them angry and what they do (or WANT to do, or think SHOULD be done) about it. You get to choose what is included in your portrait whether it be just yourself, or you and something you’ve made, something you love, something that inspires you. You style your own shoot and choose how you want to be represented.
If you wanna be a subject and vocalise what makes you angry and why you’re a feminist, send me an email to the address above. I’ll be starting the project in the new year. (Please only apply if you’re based in England. I will probably also do some kind of submission-based thing for people outside the UK but haven’t finalised it yet).

We as women are trained to see ourselves as cheap imitations of fashion photographs, rather than seeing fashion photographs as cheap imitations of women. Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth (via spoookywinchesters) Friday Nov 11 @ 05:43pm

p1ants:

it’s hard 2 be sad about ur body when you think of it as a landscape. you don’t criticise a mountain for being too big, or a valley for being too winding, and no one ever complains about the vastness of the sea. u are part of the earth and u are so beautiful friends.

Instead of telling people not to call each other fat, why don’t we teach them that fat isn’t an insult
