Firstly!

My Torchwood/Pulp mashup covers are being published in the upcoming Geek Mook, which I'm very pleased about. As are most fanworks created within the context of fandom, they were a labour of love to share with likeminded folk, so I'm chuffed about seeing them valued in a wider cultural context.

Secondly: here's a call for papers for the next mook, which is going to be on FAT! Very exciting. I'm all enthused about submitting something - I haven't written for a while, but I'm currently getting more and more interested in working on visual art - especially as I just picked up some embroidery for the first time in at least a decade.


Fat Mook


mook - 1. A bound hybrid publication issued in a series. 2. Not quite a magazine, not quite a book. 3. A collection of surprising, unconventional new writing.

fat - 1. The ester of glycerol and one, two, or three fatty acids. 2. Obesity; corpulence. 3. The best or richest part.

Vignette Press is seeking new work for the latest in its acclaimed series of mooks. After The Sex Mook, The Death Mook, and Geek Mook, comes Fat Mook.

In a climate where fat bodies are ridiculed, controlled, and feared, Fat Mook seeks to expand the ways we think about fat. We’re looking for work that says something both new and real about fat – work that is accessible but makes us think, that goes to hard places and takes us through them, that is ugly and beautiful and changes the way we breathe. We’re keen on art, photography, poetry, memoir, fiction, comics, non-fiction, and other innovative forms – surprise us!

We are looking for work that goes beyond stereotypes and broadens the existing take on fat. To this end, we particularly encourage contributions from people of colour, queer folk, gender diverse folk, disabled folk, and people from around the world. We also encourage submissions from men, as most fat work is written by women, but we welcome all submissions – we want to read your work.

Fat Mook will be the first collection of creative work on fat to be published in Australia.
