I'm soon going to be part of a kickstarter project, launching an anthology of weird fiction stories from women writers called Disturbing the Beast, featuring Aliya Whiteley, Kirsty Logan and other talented up-and-coming writers.
The collection explores lesser talked about female centred topics including sexual abuse, pregnancy issues and body image in the form of weird fiction. Boudicca is keen to unearth these subjects in a healthy and respectful way, something we feel is not often considered in mainstream, contemporary literature. It's our debut collection, so we're really keen to get this project off the ground, publish some great stories and pay all those involved fairly.
Submissions for the anthology are still open until the 14th September too, so feel free to pass this on if you know someone who's interested in submitting.
We’re launching this project on Kickstarter on the 3rd September to raise £2500 pay our contributors and print the book.
I'd love your help with spreading the word to get the pledges rolling in from the 3rd September - full Kickstarter details can be found here, where there will also be a live link to the campaign from 3rd September: www.boudiccapress.wordpress.
I'd be grateful if you could post/share/tweet/chat from the 3rd September when we launch the project and share this message with anyone you think may be interested.
