Write For Us

Writing Guidelines

Who?

  • We have permanent writers but absolutely want to encourage guest bloggers to contribute.
  • We welcome feminists of all ages, gender and sexual orientation who are keen to share their views and opinions.

What?

  • Feature articles, commentaries and opinion pieces are preferred. We also encourage reviews of books, films, theatre, art and music that pertain to feminism. Occasionally we may publish fictional prose or poetry.
  • We would like a good number (but not all) of our articles to focus on feminism in Singapore, so think about how you might make what you’re writing relevant to Singapore in some way.
  • We do not prescribe to any particular kind of feminism and are open to opinions that represent varied perspectives.
  • We encourage a rational but witty and humorous style – this is a blog and not an academic journal so we much prefer a more casual and accessible style of writing.
  • Features and opinions should be between 2000 – 3000 words. Reviews should be between 1500-2000 words. But this is only a guideline so feel free to discuss it with the editor.
  • Do email the editor with your ideas before you start writing so you don’t end up wasting a good afternoon writing something that doesn’t suit us or that someone else is already covering.
  • We prefer to publish articles or reviews that have not been published elsewhere.
  • Please avoid libeling anyone or presenting false information.  If you use quotes or statistics do be careful and provide the source. That said, no footnotes or endnotes please! Just keep all that information within the main text.

How?

  • Once the editor has given you the go ahead for the piece and discussed a deadline just write and submit your article via email (mohinimyth@gmail.com) and in .doc format that allows editing. Please include your name AND the name that you want published with the article. Also email a short 2 line blurb about yourself that can be either serious or humorous. This blurb will be published with your article.

When?

  • The editor will suggest a deadline for submission.
  • Your article may not be published immediately but feel free to discuss publication dates with the editor.

Other Stuff

  • The editor has a right to edit your article or review but major changes will usually be referred back to you before the article is published.
  • We can’t pay you for your article or review, as this is a not-for-profit endeavor. You will however benefit from the knowledge that your opinion matters and makes a difference!
