Q&A with Grace Campbell

This week comedian, activist and author-to-be of The Future of Men, Grace Campbell answers my questions.

What attracted you to writing for the FUTURES essay series?
I have never written in this format before and I’m really excited to explore the topic of men in the medium of a short book. It’s a great way to explore and understand an issue and I think the concept of the future series is great. 

Why did you choose to write The Future of Men?
Because men have always fascinated me from a very young age. I think the relationship between men and feminism is very confused right now and I want to see if I can use my life’s experiences to solve that in some way. 

How are you going to approach writing your essay?
I’ve been planning and drawing ideas from my stand up material in regards to experiences that I enjoy talking about. Then I guess I’ll just start writing. 

Which other essay in this set are you most looking forward to reading & why?
I’m really looking forward to reading all of them but if it were one it would have to be Frankie Boyle’s. I’m such a big fan of his in regards to his comedy and his writing and I’m sure what he has to say about the future of British politics will be important reading. 

And finally, what else should I have asked you?
You should have asked me whether or not I’m optimistic about the future of men. And the answer is I won’t know until I’ve written this essay.
