Write for us – IWD Magazine


Ever wished you could find a women’s or girls’ magazine that was better than the usual stuff on the shelves? And with no air-brushing? Help us create one! A positive alternative magazine by the community, for the community! Scroll down to add your article.

We’re inviting supporters – especially women and girls, across Derby & Derbyshire to contribute to our International Women’s Day Derby Festival magazine and programme featuring our inspiring speakers, which will be published online and also a printed version at our annual festival.

Your writing must be under 300 words and relevant to our 2020 theme #ShePersisted encouraging women and girls into activism, change-making in the community and trailblazing in male-dominated sectors and spaces. Deadline 31st January 2020

Please also send a photo to go with your article – ideally perception-changing action shots – we’d love to showcase images of women and girls riding bikes, digging allotments, leading marches, using a megaphone, in a science lab, painting a canvas, skateboarding, playing electric guitar, climbing, running a meeting, playing rugby, drumming, etc please send your pics by e-mail to womensdayinderby@gmail.com with info to help us match your image with your article.

We cannot guarantee to print all submissions received but will aim to include as many as we can that are relevant. Non-commercial content is sought e.g. poems, or about causes, charities, inspiring women’s life stories, women’s eco campaigns & community projects, your favourite activist, women in science, feminism, etc – enjoy writing! #ExpressYouself Our priority is giving space for women and girls in Derby/shire but relevant submissions from allies of all genders welcome, content on intersectional feminism themes and trans inclusion and non-binary identity and men as allies would be lovely to receive

You can send us your article via the form on this page – (scroll down)

We hope to receive a variety of articles, poems, cartoons, etc up to 300 words maximum but shorter ones are great too; it must be your own work and you must not breach copyright with the text or images submitted.

Advertising space is available to purchase call 0791 368 0088
