Will Blog for Money: Help Me Get a Copy of Feminism for Real

So, readers, I was having a little conundrum today.  I really would like to review the new anthology Feminism for Real, but I am in the middle of a strict austerity plan due to a soul-crushing dental bill.  I was agonizing over how to get together the $15 to buy the book when I had a thought: why not offer blog posts for money?  Here’s what you do: comment, Tweet @ queerscholar, or leave a message on the Radically Queer Facebook page with a topic, issue, etc. you’d like me to blog on.  The first three that I am able to do, I’ll let you know that your idea has been selected and give you instructions to Paypal me $5 towards the book.  Sound easy?  It is!  Can’t wait to hear your ideas.

  1. Hi Avory!

    I actually discovered the email address for the publisher (via another blogger) who will send advance review PDF versions of the book to bloggers who are interested in writing reviews. At least, I wrote and explained who I was and sent them a couple of example posts and they sent me the file!

    The email is: ccpa [at] policyalternatives [dot] ca. The contact name was Jason Moores.

    Cheers,
    Anna

  2. You know what? I’m a poor college student. But you’re a phenomenal blogger, and I would totally support you in an academic endeavor. What’s 5 bucks anyway…I’ve been cheating the system by mailing stuff that’s not books media mail…so I can help you buy a book.

    I think you should write about the way that intersectionality works in the academic world…for instance, does the academic world take into account all intersections when “diversifying”, or just certain ones? I have very strong views on this, and I’d like to hear another. You can alter the topic as long as it has to do with intersectionality.
