Thanks for your interested in submitting something to BINADW.
We are currently working on Issue Issue #7, #8 & #9 at the moment.
Issue #7: focuses on butch on butch friendships and relationships, so if you have a pal or lover that you'd like to be photographed / submit a story with, this works as well.
Issue #8: focuses on activism and organisation, so if you're active for a particular cause your passionate about, or are a community organiser we'd love to hear your stories.
Issue #9: focuses on stories about failure, do you have a story about a time when you've failed yourself, your family, a lover or a friend ? What lessons came from this failure? What can we take from your story?
We ask that people tie in their relationship to the butch identity to their written pieces in some way shape or form, but it's pretty open to personal discretion.
How the process works:
1. You submit a story. (1000 words maximum).
2. We organize a portrait photoshoot.
3. If your piece needs any work or editing, we get you to work alongside our co-editor to refine it, then when everyone's happy with the final product we send it off to print to accompany your photos.
All submissions should be emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
