Luna Lovegood Sonorus

Submissions are now open for Sonorus: Feminist Perspectives on Harry Potter issue five!

As always, we are looking for submissions related to gender and social justice in the Harry Potter books, films and fandom, and connected to the series as a cultural phenomenon. We can accept:

  1. Articles
  2. Opinion pieces
  3. Fan fiction (on a related theme)
  4. Fan art (on a related theme)

Feel free to interpret the theme however works for you!

All other submissions (as long as they are well-evidenced and not discriminatory in any way) will be printed in the zine.

To celebrate our fifth issue, everyone who submits an article or buys a previous issue will get entered into a prize draw. The prizes and rules will be revealed next month!
