Media / Press Request

Please note, we get a lot of requests from media organisations or people wanting speakers and quotes for articles, but please understand that this website is run by volunteers in our spare time, and we do have day jobs. We are not usually able to talk to the press/media at short notice.

If you contact us with a request for the above or are looking for a contributor to a radio or TV discussion, your message will be forwarded to a group of F-Word editors and writers who have expressed an interest in responding to media/press requests. If any of them are willing to get back to you then they will contact you directly.

Please email [email protected] and include the following information in order to improve your chances of a response:

  • The name of the newspaper, magazine, website, podcast, TV or radio programme you are working for, if you are a journalist. If you don’t tell us which publication you are writing an article for, it is unlikely you will receive a response
  • The name of your organisation, if you are seeking someone to speak at your event
  • Your deadline
  • Email and telephone contact details
  • A full description of what you’re after, the more specific the better
  • The fee that you have available

A variety of feminists contribute to The F-Word. In this capacity, we sometimes receive enquiries from journalists asking for “The F-Word view” or “what does The F-Word think about…?” In response to these, we would like to clarify that there is no generic F-Word perspective. The reply you get on any given day will very much depend on who has picked up your enquiry.

As contributors, we have all read things we don’t agree with on the site. We see this diversity of opinion as a strength. The F-Word is a vehicle for many intertwined but, crucially, individual feminist voices and not a faceless corporate machine. Our words are not The F-Word View. We do not speak as a site. We speak as writers for it.
