As we head into the last month of summer, it strikes me that our theme for February is a bit bleak for the warmer months – ‘Abandonment’ implies the abrupt discarding of something or someone that isn’t ready to be let go. There’s a cold edge to the word, a sadness that could have led to some pieces tinged with despair.
Instead, I was surprised by the unique directions this month’s contributors have taken with the theme. From Erin Stewart’s exploration of female friendships, through to Elizabeth Caplice’s moving ode to her liver, February holds some diverse and intriguing content in store.
Be ready for some in depth memoir, thought provoking fiction and poetry, and as usual, profiles of some amazing feminists about town.
On Thursday 26 February at The Front, we’ll be hosting a special event exploring queer feminisms – so stay tuned for more info on that.
We’re looking for submissions for March, and Wednesday is the pitch deadline, so get in touch if you’d like to see your words here!
Thanks, as always, for reading.
