Fill In The Gap is a magazine designed for women of color to help fill information on things your mother should have told you. We all come from different backgrounds with different values but are called to function in the same world. You can pick up some information. You can share some information. This information comes from people who know and have been there. After all, information is power.
If you would like to contribute to this magazine in the area of:
health, physical or mental,
weight loss, diet, exercise,
parenting, relationships, marriage
fashion, makeup, hair
finances, budgeting, insurance
If you are an expert in any of these areas send me a pitch for an article. There will also be art, photography, and poetry in the magazine. If you are interested in subscribing or advertising, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember when you were grown and gone. You thought you knew everything you needed to survive on your own but quickly found out there were lots of things you didn’t know.
Fill In The Gaps in a new magazine geared for women of color. FITG helps women understand things their mother may have not told them or that they didn’t listen to at the time.
It will be light and fun, except when it is not because some issues are not fun. It will cover women’s health issues, legal, weight loss, spiritual needs, exercise, fashion, justice, employment, parenting, relationships, men, activism, side hustles, etc.
If this sounds fun, send me your pitch for an article. If I like your idea, your story will be part of the magazine and you may have a featured spot. Send your pitches to email@example.com. Please allow a couple of weeks for a response.
I have this fun photo shoot idea I have been toying with that I plan to shoot in 2015. It is titled Queens of Freedom and Human Rights. It will take 12 women who have championed freedom in classic poses from old photos and dress them like modern day queens. I think it will be a great way to honor Black History Month and Women’s History Month. I am currently running an Indiegogo campaign to fund it. I will post updates, so check back.
