Celebrate fat acceptance with the definitive collection of art, poetry, and prose.
The time has come for fat people to reclaim the words that have been used to define them thanks to a new groundbreaking compendium hitting shelves this September.
In case you missed it, Bustle recently revealed the cover for The (Other) F Word: A Celebration of the Fat & Fierce, and let’s just say we’re obsessed. Loaded with personal essays, prose, poetry, fashion tips, and art, the visual celebration of fat bodies is set to not only offer fat readers a guidebook to becoming their best, most confident selves, but also offer those of all sizes a road map for reconceiving our notions of beauty and acceptance.
Already down with the book’s message and purpose? Wait until you see the diverse list of voices editor Angie Manfredi called in to lend their talents to the project.
From renowned fat YA and middle-grade authors, to fat influencers and creatives, these are the beautiful people who will be helping all of us navigate our world with confidence and courage this fall. And we thank them for that!
