The Women's Theme: Women (& Cover Reveal!)

April’s theme brings you; women. This is the magazine issue for everyone out there who either identify as a woman or want to support them. In an artistic and literary context, we’re going to be celebrating women with this month’s content. What does that include?
  • Submissions from the public, including poetry and short stories that celebrate women.
  • Lots and lots of FEMINISM (yay!)
  • Articles from myself and the Paperfox staff about women in a literary context
  • Art work from fabulous artists!
  • Poetry & Prose
  • An interview with Michael Grant, about his trilogy ‘Front Lines’, which explores the “What If’s” of history by writing about WW2 from within a re-imagined society where women were invited to fight on the front lines.
Who’s on the cover this month?
We're excited to be featuring incredible artwork by Jemma Humphreys from Dorkface Blog. Jemma is an incredible writer of blog posts and personal essays and runs an Etsy store where she sells artwork like what you see featured on our cover and other similar pieces. She also designs stickers and very lovingly designed incredible notebooks where the proceedings were donated to planned parenthood. We recommend you go and check Jemma out on her blog! More information (in her own words) and more of her art will be featured in this month's Paperfox Issue.

Who are we interviewing this month?
Editor-in-chief Bethany Ashley is interviewing Michael Grant for Paperfox. She went over to Egmont Publishing House and had a great chat with Michael about writing, and about his trilogy; Front Lines. Michael Grant’s trilogy is fantastic and explores themes of feminism, sexism, race and other social issues. The premise of the books is that they are a retelling of WW2, about what could have happened if women were invited to fight on the front lines. The narrative follows three female GIs who fought during WW2, and it’s a brilliant read. It’s a thinker!

So, that's some of what's happening in Paperfox this month! Submissions for the women’s issue close on the 15th of April, but you can go and check out our submission guidelines to see what future themes we’ll be accepting work from! We accept work for all themes all year round until their closing dates, which are the 15th of each month the theme’s are assigned to.
