We’ve just published detailed guidelines for submitting a pitch for a Guest Post here at Feministe.
We’re also looking for some volunteers to be part of an editorial-team just for considering/managing the publication of Guest Posts (no thread-moderating duties, just editorial).

Lauren will hold down the fort from Friday until Sunday, through the rest of September. The status of weekend blogging is still up [...]...read more
Just finished the panel at Yearly Kos. It was… ok. Glenn was awesome, as expected. There are a few things I wish I would have said that I didn’t get out.
