Call for Contributors

Does some part of you long to return to the easy-living days of childhood? Are the 90’s your favorite decade? Does *NSYNC or The Beatles hold special places in your heart? If you answered yes to one (or all) of the above, then you should write for Loco Mag! We’re looking for contributors who are super knowledgeable, have experienced or just really love the word nostalgia for our latest issue. If being nostalgic is something you’re good at or if you have a story or personal experience that relates to longing for the past then don’t be shy!

Be creative, have fun, & send us your ideas!  All submissions are welcome from writers, artists, graphic designers, videographers and photographers.

a strong voice and be creative. Shortest piece should be around 1200 words. Interviews should be
