Fangirl Rising is a scholarly blog that seeks to explore representations of gender and the LGBTQ community within fandom. We will explore these representations within popular culture as well as explore how the fan community explores those representations. We are interested in articles about popular culture, about fanfiction or other fan practices, interviews with prominent members of the fan community, experiences of fans within the fandom community, reviews, etc. We welcome written post, podcast, or video content. If you are interested in submitting a piece to us please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your proposal, name, email, academic affiliation (if any), and link to your website or online presence (if you have one).
Unfortunately at this time we are unable to offer any form of monetary compensation- we hope to change this in the future. For now if you write for us it is for love of fandom and the desire to add your voice to the ongoing discussion of popculture and representations of gender and the LGBTQ community.
