Call for Contributors

Loco Mag is seeking talented writers, photographers, videographers, designers, and interviewers to contribute to our latest issue! Loco is a lifestyle and culture magazine always on the hunt for new articles, photospreads, and fresh takes on student perspectives. We’re not strictly a news publication. We want to hear your voice and read your stories.

For our newest issue our theme is Free For All. We want articles about political freedom and the concept of free speech. Write about what frees you. Interview the best freestyle rapper/dancer/beatboxer you know. Create a running diary of your First Friday experience. Capture the chaos of a truly “free-for-all” event. Analyze the drawbacks of a “free” market. Tell the world about the best places to find free samples. Whatever it is, make sure it’s uniquely your voice. Use Free For All as an inspiration, and and interpret it however you like. We want to hear your opinions, whether that be through photojournalism, writing, or videos. Uncensor yourself and let us know how you really feel. Here at Loco, we want student perspective to come first. Take our theme, put a spin on it, and let your creativity shine.

Our sections include Travel, Lifestyle, Lists, Photo/Video, Entertainment, Health, and Features. Features typically run around 2,500 words. Have more than that? Cool! If not, no worries. We’re an electronic publication so space is unlimited. We’ll accept anything from a 250 word photospread to a 500 word interview. Just make sure to have a strong voice and be creative.

Your final article will need to be submitted no later than October 27, 2014. You can find where to pitch your idea under the “Submissions” tab on the Loco Mag homepage.

Send any questions to editor@locomag.com, and be sure to follow us on Twitter @locomag and like us on Facebook, too.
