To become a feminist ear is to find a way to get the complaints moving again. Perhaps if this is a picture of complaint, it is also a picture of time and also of a life, what a life can become in the time of complaint. A complaint is like a bag that gets heavier in time, the longer it takes the more it weighs. Or it might be the time a complaint takes is time as some of us don’t have.

Most of their stories have an international focus and a sense of place but they are adamant about not publishing conventional travel writing. They also want stories that are relevant to anyone, not just women. Pay is negotiated once the piece has been accepted. Six Hens publishes first-person nonfiction stories about “moments that define and redefine.” They only accept submissions from women writers but the topic of the essay does not have to be about feminist or women’s issues. Pay is $50 for stories of up to 2,000 words.

The students observed that the senior managers had been nodding throughout my lecture including nodding during my discussion of nodding as non-performative. The students were at the tail end of a long and difficult complaint. And they told me that the management had enacted the same tactics that I was describing in the lecture. Nodding can be about recognising a problem insofar as the problem is safely construed as being somewhere else or as coming from someone else. If you can nod at the critique of nodding, then you can appear to recognise the problem of appearing to recognise a problem.

I think of where complaints end up, behind those doors, in those files, in that complaint graveyard. I think of all that is also there with them. The places that complaints are buried, are holders of many histories, histories of profound pain and loss, of violence, yes, but also histories of struggle, or refusal, those who say no to it, who won’t go along with it, who won’t take any more of it. It is not surprising then that to complain is to find out so much, you put yourself in touch with a history, you find stuff out about yourself, what you will and won’t take, but also other people, about institutions, about power. You might find out about other complaints, earlier complaints. In the book you will read about secret letters in post-boxes, file mysteriously appearing on fax machines, graffiti on books left by one to be picked up later by another.

From custom pins to keychains to stickers to handmade items, you can create all types of promotional items that will capture a potential reader or resonate with a long-time fan.

Practice will make you better at photography, particularly if you combine that practice with study in the form of a class or online instruction.
