International Women’s Day is on March 8 and in honor of it, I’ll be accepting essays on women, gender and culture for the next few weeks to publish at ianyanmag.com. If you’re interested, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Contributors can be of any background and gender, and your piece will be read internationally.

Aww yeah gettin’ down to business. :D
