What should I write about?

We welcome you to write about anything that you believe deserves attention. And that means anything! However, intersectionalist Feminism is at the core of who we are, so remember to be inclusive. A list of ideas will be sent out monthly via the newsletter to give you some inspiration. However, you don’t have to choose one of these topics — we are open for your thoughts and opinions on the subjects that you feel warrant a discussion. If you would like to write about a topic that someone else has already written about, that’s fine too. Aside from the gender component, the only other aspect that we wish to truly emphasise is passion — we urge you to write from a place of true emotion and we want this to be visible through your words.

To join the monthly newsletter packed full of ideas for authors, simply email info@genderandthecity.com
