Hi, Beloved Readers,
Thanks so much for a fantastic 2013. We couldn’t have done it without our amazing contributors, all of whom volunteer their efforts to contribute to this community. We’re always open to new writers and pitches. Take a look at our Contribute page for some ideas.
We’re always looking to bring in new voices. And that means we’re especially interested in writers:
- from outside of the United States
- from diverse economic backgrounds
- of color
- who are sex-working men
- who are transgender
- from the Midwestern and Southern United States
Our only requirement is that you are or have been a sex worker.
We recognize that the stigma of sex work makes publishing your writing in a permanent, public forum intimidating! So, we will work hard to product your identity and will certainly allow you to use a pseudonym if that’s what you require.
We’re always looking for book, television, and film reviews, coverage of local activist events, and commentary on current events. Please email email@example.com or holler at one of our editors on Twitter; Caty handles activist news and book reviews, Josephine is happy to talk about popular culture of all kinds, and Susan (fka Bubbles) wants to hear about policy and labor issues. P.S. We’re always considering future editors, in case you’ve got some extra time on your hands.
