Article: Femnista [Halloween & Nov/Dec 2015]

Posted 1 December, 2015 by Lianne in Writing / 2 Comments

The end of October/beginning of November was busy here on the blog so I wasn’t able to post up the Hallowe’en issue of Femnista properly. So yes, I did contribute to the 2015 Hallowe’en issue of the e-zine. The theme was on villainesses and I decided to write up on Lady Macbeth from Shakespeare’s Macbeth (review). She’s a fascinating character and her relationship with her husband and that balance and knowledge in what they done to secure power is a fascinating aspect of the play.

I also contributed to the November/December issue of the e-zine. The theme this time was on The Renaissance, which is such a trove of art, culture, political, and historical developments in Europe. It was a bit of a head scratcher figuring out what to write on as there’s so many figures to write on. In the end, and again coming off from my binge earlier this year, I went with William Shakespeare (see author tag). I still had a bit of a hard time writing about Shakespeare–should I focus on his life? On my own personal experience reading his work?–but in the end I decided to go with what is it about his works that endure and why we still read/watch/listen/study it today.

I hope you enjoy both issues of Femnista, they feature fantastic subjects and articles 🙂 If you’re interested in contributing to the e-zine and you love to write and talk about arts & entertainment & history, the themes for 2016 are now up and you can contact the editor at femnista [at] charitysplace [dot] com to secure a spot. Happy reading! 😀

  1. Yay for Femnista. I always love to see Charity and all of you amazing writer’s put out another edition. One of these days I’d like to get back to contributing some, but right now, that wouldn’t be wise (too busy with other pursuits). Glad to see your name still among the writer’s, Lianne.

    • Thanks Rissi! I didn’t write for any of the earlier issues this year due to offline happenings so it was nice to be back (now, if only I can get my personal writing projects going…) Best of luck with your other pursuits, hope to see some of your writings again on Femnista (maybe next year?) 🙂
