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.
We’re about to revamp the entire Loco site, so it’s only fitting that our newest theme revolves around ideas of renewal, redesign and rethinking. We’re reissuing a new version of Loco, but pretty much any “re” word is up for grabs as inspiration. For this edition, we want articles that focus on new perspectives. Write about recent remakes that you hate. Talk about redoing a poignant moment in your life. Discuss remix culture or respond to a political issue you feel strongly about. Go back into the Loco archives and revamp a past article, giving us a new take on our old ideas. Whatever it is, make sure it’s uniquely your voice. Use the idea of redoing 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, 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 February 15, 2015. You can find where to pitch your idea under the “Submit Work” tab on the Loco Mag homepage.
