Loco Magazine is sending a call for contributors for our Naked Truth issue. All submissions are welcome, however we are specifically looking for designers, photographers, features, interviews and profiles. Loco is a student run magazine that is seeking the ideas and talents of Arcadia students. We are a Lifestyle/Cultural magazine that focuses on the lives of college students and providing a magazine that showcases this perspective. This isn’t a news publication. It covers a broad range of subject’s including art, events, and political news. Our main goal is to bring a publication to this campus that will work to connect students to each other, and with the world around us. We want to learn your stories and hear you opinions, whether that is through writing or photo journalism we want to broadcast you. We are uncensored and open to hearing fresh perspectives.
