We publish personal essays, and op-eds, and we’re actively looking to get your voice on here, especially from experienced writers with a body positive bent who want to talk about why there aren’t a more diverse collection of megababes in fashion.
We’re looking for personal essays confessional, and hilarious — about body image, style, and beauty, not in that “I used to like my elbow and now I do.” Write the timely, brutally honest story only you can tell — the night that changed how you felt about your look. Here’s an example of a Parisian woman’s lifelong battle with her laser surgery-proof body hair.
We’re also looking for op-eds — strong stances that demonstrate an ability to see beyond your own navel — like this take on the impossible quest to find clothes that fit or this quicker take on Rachel Roy’s curve line. Stuff that enlightens and questions and makes people think. Writable sense of humor about fashion, life and yourself encouraged.
