For over a year now, bluestockings has been dreaming of transforming our humble, WordPress blog into a website that could match the quality of the work we publish. The ability to highlight authors more prominently and allow users to navigate without as many clunky distractions were central to this vision. We hope to use this platform similarly to how we have in the past, and also to experiment with the uses, boundaries, and impacts of internet feminism.
This is our online gallery of work. Though we’re still not the glitziest out there, we’ve built nicer frames and installed some mood lighting.
We’ve also transferred to a new submissions manager. In the past, we’ve struggled with the volume of work sent to our e-mail account, so by taking this professional step we hope to establish better relationships with our writers, and to keep ourselves better organized. We’re accepting submissions on a rolling basis, so go ahead and submit your writing and/or art. We can’t wait to for it to blow our minds.
Look around! Have fun! And consider adding your voice to this ever-expanding project we call bluestockings.In love and solidarity, Chanelle Adams and Maru Pabón Co-Editors-in-Chief
