Where I’m Writing These Days (Other Than In Notebooks)

Where I’m Writing These Days (Other Than In Notebooks)

It’s strange that after a decade and a half of keeping my blog and collected writings here at Zuzu’s Petals I don’t regularly post here anymore. There’s a good reason, though: I prefer to get paid for my essays rather than give them away for free now. 

Here’s where to find my newest writings online: 

  1. The full list of my published pieces, updated as soon as I publish something new, can be found here.
  2. I’m a staff writer over at intersectional feminist media outlet Wear Your Voice Magazine, and I’m covering South Asian issues, feminism, and pop culture. You can follow my feed here.
  3. You can also follow my Bitch Magazine feed, as well as Ravishly contributor page. I’m also featured in Bitch Magazine’s Revenge issue from winter 2018, as well as the upcoming Ghosts issue in fall 2018.
  4. My entire Huffington Post contributing blogger archive can be found here

The best way to get updates on when I’ve published something new is by following my Facebook page and turning on notifications since I mainly use it for those announcements.

You can also follow my Twitter feed, but my new article announcements can tend to get buried under a mound of politics there.

My first book of collected published essays — from 2007-2016 — is finally out. Snag your copy of Eclectopedia Vol. One: Essays On All the Topics on Amazon or in any other online bookseller. The ebook is exclusively available for Kindle. 

My novels American Monsters and Crime Rave are also readily available as print and e-books from all online booksellers. 

Thanks for visiting my little corner of cyberspace, and I hope to see you elsewhere around the interwebs!

Cheers,

Zuzu

Black and Brown Sisters Are Doing Visual Media For Themselves

Black and Brown Sisters Are Doing Visual Media For Themselves

“When the dominant visual media paradigm is one of hegemonic whiteness, there are a limited number of choices for women of color. Submit yourself to the hegemony and take whatever scraps casting agents, directors, producers throw at you even if they might be problematic. Or, smash that shit and begin carving out your own space. More and more black and brown women are choosing the latter, and it is glorious.” For Wear Your Voice Mag, June 2017. Read full post.
