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! 😀
