Paper Droids on-line magazine seeks geek culture pieces for women

Paper Droids
On-line magazine based in Toronto

Paper Droids was founded in 2011 by a group of publishing students who were dissatisfied by a lack of geeky outlets for women. We publish articles daily on a broad spectrum of topics that cover as much geek culture as possible, focusing on women’s issues when applicable.

We’re looking for people with a strong interest in geekery who can write from a female perspective. You are welcome to apply to as many sections as you see fit.
