The purpose of Nothing But Red is to bring attention to the issue of violence against women worldwide, as well as the continuing need for equality, through art—both written and visual—and by raising money for a charity that strives to help women of all faiths, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds, with the support of dedicated volunteers who share a desire to promote equality.
What We’re Doing: The plan is to put together an anthology of “responses” to both Khalil’s death and the issues Joss Whedon raised in his original essay (culture of misogyny, violence against women, and the need for equality). It will be printed through Lulu.com, with all proceeds going to charity (we’re thinking Equality Now).
What We’re Looking For: Writers and artists with something to say–people who want to make a difference. Into short stories? Poetry? Essays? Flash fiction? Photography? Graphic art? Any medium is good: this is about expression. We’re also looking for people who just want to help, be it spreading the word, brainstorming ideas, or just offering support. We believe everyone in this world has something of value to contribute.
How You Can Help: Visit our “Submissions” page if you’re interested in being a part of the anthology, whether you have something to submit or you’d like to offer other services. If you’d just like to be kept up to date, send an email to Skyla at SkylaDawnCameron@yahoo.ca and she’ll keep you in the loop.
