Frequently Asked Questions about the Heady Mix book box

What is Heady Mix?

 Heady Mix is the feminist book box focused on diversity; we spotlight the people, places or perspectives that don’t have enough representation in Western culture. Examples of our themed book boxes include stories that explore the myriad of refugee journeys; experiences from the D/deaf community; global migrants, Indigenous peoples and the devastating impact climate change is having on their land; Afrofuturism – stories that narrate a sci-fi version of the African continent free from famine and other Western stereotypes; feminist fairy tales; and stories from the LGBTQIA+ community living in parts of the world where their identity is criminalised.  Our aim is that by reading the diverse stories contained with the Heady Mix boxes, our readers will not only discover new ways to view and understand that world but will also become better allies to these underrepresented groups.  

What's in a Heady Mix box?

Heady Mix themes are chosen to highlight an issue, a stereotype or bias that impacts the collection's underrepresented groups. You can choose a Heady Mix book box subscription that delivers every two months or month. Whichever, membership you choose, each book has been carefully selected by our Chief Curator, Justina. She has taken time to search out new stories that have not be shared widely enough, that offer new exciting perspectives, will enlighten you and help you to think differently. We also publish a collection of stories, essays and flash fiction centred around that collection's theme. This means we offer you genuinely new and different stories that aren't easy to find or get with another subscription book box.
