101 Vagina made it into The Australian today, a glorious 19 whole words worth!
And I was interviewed by MX Brisbane, who will pass the story to Sydney and Melbourne MX also, for a possible article in the next few days. The woman I spoke to there said that MX have a bit more freedom to cover quirky stories than the main stream news papers, so it seems this is right up their ally :)
The Australian mention reads:
PRESS release heading of the day: “101 Vagina - Taboo smashing coffee table book - Seeking participants.” Don’t panic, It’s art.”
Here is a scan below, ignore the other articles.
And on theaustralian.com.au website it appears in the search but only accessible in the “premium section”. I’m flattered! :)
Well, I could have spent hours and hours collating a long list of potentially interested media outlets and publications to send them a media release but there are companies who specialise in doing just this for a reasonable fee, so I decided to save some time and clicked submit.
Out went an email to around 350 publications, magazines, TV, radio, newspapers, etc.
Will be interesting to see what comes of it :) An experiment of sorts…
Here is the pdf of the release.
