In blue on a white background, the DUFC logo: in a square with rounded corners, there is the "female symbol" with the Southern Cross inside, above which it says 'Down Under' and below 'Feminists Carnival'.

It’s almost the end of November…

My favourite month on that Gregorian calendar. Oh well. At least that means it’s time to get your DUFC entries in to our esteemed host for this month, tigtog! She will be hosting at Hoyden About Town, that hub of Downunderan feminism. Submissions may be sent to tigtog [at] gmail [dot] com for those who can’t access the blogcarnival submissions form.

Submissions must be of posts of feminist interest by writers from Australia and New Zealand that were published in November. Submissions are due on 2 December at the latest, but do be a dear and get them in as soon as you can. Please spread the word! Submission numbers have been on the rise, which is really great to see.

Having trouble remembering to submit? Mary of puzzling.org has made a bookmarklet that will make DUFC submitting very quick and easy for Firefox users.

And also, What would you like to see in DUFC?

I’ve been running this ship for several months now. Bizarre, but true. I was wondering if you, the community, had any suggestions for what you’d like to see changed in the way the carnival is run. Perhaps you’d like new categories, for instance. Mary kindly suggested that I create a delicious tag, so you can tag posts you want to draw to our attention. Would that work for you? Let me know!
