Two new section editors join the team – come say hello

I’m pleased to welcome two people to The F-Word team: Gemma Fraser, our new fiction editor, and Lissy Lovett, our new comedy editor.

I’ll let them introduce themselves in their own words – please say hello!

GemmaFraser1Gemma Fraser – fiction editor
Gemma Fraser is a writer and editor from Lancashire, currently living in the Isle of Man. She is also a classical soprano, compulsive book-buyer, geeky fangirl, pinko-lefty-bleeding-heart-liberal and dog lover. She started out at The F-Word blogging about disability and is now delighted to be able to harp on incessantly about books in her role as Fiction Editor.

Like roughly 93% of the population she is Working On Her Novel when she isn’t distracting herself by getting angry about things on Twitter. Find her here: @gamineandchips

LissyLissy Lovett – comedy editor
Q: How many feminists does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: That’s not funny!
Lissy Lovett works in the arts and lives in South London. She likes comedy, theatre, reality television, sewing, beer, Norwich City Football Club, the Streatham Ice Hockey teams and feminism. From time to time she tweets @lissylovett.

You can contact them at fiction@thefword.org.uk or comedy@thefword.org.uk (I’ll let you work out who’s who).
