Rattlecap: n. An unsteady, volatile person; a madcap: generally said of a girl.
The Rattlecap was created by a group of University of Edinburgh students who wanted to create a space where activism and radical thought are central and accessible. Our monthly editions, centered around a chosen theme, will bring together creative writing, politics, history, education, art, and advocacy.
We value voices that are underrepresented in today’s narratives; voices that show a perspective that examines, challenges, and radically reimagines the society that we live in. We hope that The Rattlecap can become an intersectional forum for discussion and change, and a thought-provoking, kind, and empowering space.
