Pitch Us

We are always looking for contributors who can bring unique perspectives that feature areas of their research, expertise or experience as it relates to the theme of death and the feminine.

We will consider anything from academic papers to personal essays, to interviews, as well as artistic pieces. Word count is not an issue. This is an inclusive space, so you are welcome to contribute no matter how you identify. We are particularly seeking pieces by and about  non-binary writers, writers of color, and LGBTQIA writers, communities and individuals.

We are currently interested in pieces on “bad deaths”, and the ways race, gender, and privilege play a large role in determining who has access to a “good death” and how these factors impact our relationship to and with death. Interviews with activists, artists, initiatives/organizations that are addressing these issues in their work are also something we’d love to see!

 Some examples of articles we love:

 The Privilege of a Good Death

On Death, Patriarchy and the Anti-Choice Movement

 Rizpah, Guardian of the Dead

 Eating Toward Immortality

 If you are interested in pitching, we’d love to hear from you! Please email us a brief one to two line pitch, a summary of what the piece will cover, what your particular experience or insight will bring to the piece, and some links to your writing on other websites or publications, if available.

 We encourage the use of imagery but the only requirement is a good quality resolution head shot or logo and headline image.
