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, photo spreads, and fresh takes on student perspectives. We’re not strictly a news publication, and we want to hear your voice and read your stories.
Halloween’s coming up, and with it, all things spooky are filling the internet. This issue’s theme will be Of Monsters and Masks, in honor of the season. We’re not only looking for articles about scary stuff though – interpret this theme as strictly or loosely as your heart desires! Submit your scary roommate story, write an article about how people mask themselves on social media, film yourself interviewing a makeup artist, discuss the way our concept of monsters has changed with the media exposure to ‘real evil’ in the world… The sky’s the limit! Whatever it is, make sure it’s uniquely your voice. Use the idea of monsters and masks as an inspiration, 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, Photo/Video, Entertainment, 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 9, 2015. You can find where to pitch your idea under the “Submit Work” tab on the Loco Mag homepage.
