Now Tell Me
Now Tell Me is a platform I founded in 2020, dedicated to giving freelance and emerging writers on photography the freedom to write self-directed content. No brief or theme, just you and your ideas.
We had our first open call during November to December of 2020; which ran for a four-week period. The purpose of the open call was to retrieve interest and ideas for anyone who wanted to be part of the zine by writing for it, with the aim to provide the perfect opportunity to enhance portfolios and skills in writing about photography, except this time writers have total control about what they write, the style they write in and how many words.
The next stage involved asking those who took part in the open call for detailed proposals of what they would like to write about, we were very pleased with the quality of the proposals and the wide diverse range of subjects chosen. Due to the amount of content, we have decided to split it between x3 different zines (to be produced digitally for now) with the aim to publish and release each of them this year throughout the different seasons.
These have now been peer reviewed and the participating writers have been informed of which zine they have been allocated to write for.
I am receiving mentorship from Christiane Monarchi, founder of Photomonitor, who is contributing to the development and editing of this platform; with the aim to receive Public Arts Funding at a later point to extend its online presence and to realise the work as both an online and in print zine.
We’re very excited to start receiving the written texts and begin creating our first digital zine!
