New FAC Book

We are currently inviting more contributions for the next FAC book 'Come Quietly'. This project has been on hold for a while and we are very pleased to announce its return!

Our invitation is mainly for the group but we also welcome input from FAC supporters who are not necessarily members of FAC.

"Come Quietly" will be an edited collection of personal essays by women, detailing the effects of censorship on our lives, both directly and in more subtle insidious ways. The book will be a follow-on from "Tales from the Clit" and one of its aims is to promote the idea that equality of the sexes shouldn’t inevitably lead to restricted sexual freedom and limited access to sexually explicit material. We would also like the book to draw attention to wider censorship issues that are not necessarily concerned with sexually explicit material or the suppression of non-standard sexual preferences. We are presently short on submissions of this sort and would therefore be interested in receiving more pieces that look at issues such as free speech and politics.

Pieces can be anywhere between 600 and 6000 words. Updates and revisions to our guidelines will be published on this blog.

    Holly,

    Do you post on a yahoo group called 'London 3rd wave'? If so then you probably know me - but I'd like to write something on the attitude towards sex work among feminists, and opposing the popular idea of importing the Swedish law (prosecuting men) here. I'm not a member at the moment of FAC but I do support your aims.

    Email me at red_witche@yahoo.com if you're interested.

    Liz, maybe Holly will have better luck, but I got a bounce message when I sent you e-mail.
