Call-out for contributors for student-led magazine celebrating International Women’s Day

In collaboration with LU Arts, a small group of students are working on an exciting and creative project to commemorate International Women’s Day 2021.

They will be producing a one-off, risograph-printed magazine titled Wave Press – an artistic publication which aims to showcase, unite, entertain, and raise awareness of women and allies from all walks of life.

The team is formed of Lead Editor Hannah Bradfield, a postgraduate student studying Media and Cultural Analysis, Assistant Editor Hannah Thompson, a Doctoral Researcher in media and communications, and Lead Designer Lauren Postlethwaite, a final-year Graphic Communication and Illustration student.

The trio want Wave Press to be a representative and intergenerational platform which can discuss topics such as period poverty, feminism, intersectionality, and mental and sexual health, plus much more.

They are now searching for contributors to produce content they are passionate about for the magazine. This can be illustration work, creative writing, poetry, and editorial pieces. Not only will you be part of an inclusive and valuable community, but you’ll gain experience and also be able to see your work in a printed publication.

Hannah Bradfield added: “Whether you’d like to illustrate a cartoon strip documenting the waves of feminism, write poetry constructed from misogynistic comments on social media, or write a short essay on whether you think there really is a fourth wave of feminism, get in touch - we would love to hear from you!”

Those who are interested can pitch their ideas to before the deadline on Monday 25 January.
