Frances Lockie, published writer


Check me out!

An exciting thing happened this week: Girlfriend, an Australian monthly magazine for teen girls aged 14 to 17 years of age, published a story on fat stigma. Even more exciting: I’m the one who wrote it!

Girlfriend has really cool, feminist editors; some of the stories they’ve featured in recent months include street harassment, transgenderism, and a critique of the idea of ‘real women’ (interspersed with posters of One Direction, naturally. SO GET OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT OF MY HEEEAAAAD AND FALL INTO MY ARMS INSTEEEAAAD…) They hold the young women of Australia in such high regard and I’m stoked to be published in their pages.

    How did you get published? Did they approach you or did you just write the article and then gave them a call?

      They approached me! The deputy editor used to be the online editor for Cosmo and I worked with her when I did some blogging for them (the links to those psots are on my Media page). She remembered me when she moved over the Girlfriend and they approached me to write a story on fat shaming.

    Thanks for this! I’m a high school English teacher and I think I could use this in the classroom sometime.

    Well Done! What a great article. Just the sort of thing I needed to read at that age!
