About the Editors:
Kirsty is a Hufflepuff, feminist and professional nice person (i.e. charity sector worker). She likes bright colours, lattes and talking excessively. One of the main barriers in her commitment to social justice is her enduring attraction to Bellatrix Lestrange. This is her first time being editor of a zine, and she’s very excited about it. You can follow her on Twitter at @MsKirstyFace.
Devastated when she didn’t receive her Hogwarts letter aged 11, Emily decided to be an artist as it seemed the closest thing to magic a muggle could do. She now works as an illustrator, animator and Jill-of-all-trades creative person in the South of England. See her drawings at tinderboxillustration.blogspot.co.uk. You can follow her on Twitter at @emilymews.
Cath is a feminist musician, writer, zinester, activist and Ravenclaw. She writes dark cabaret music, writes a feminist zine called Here. In My Head., and is the co-chair of the Swansea University LGBT+ Network. Read her blog and listen to her music at www.catherineelms.co.uk. You can follow her on Twitter at @catherineelms.
