We’ll never get tired of saying this. This time round, though, we’re looking for people interested in writing for us online. Preferably proposals for regular blogs or series carving out an area of inquiry, but we’re also open to one-off pitches too. Our categories provide a good overview of our interests:
THE FUTURE WEIRD—Tech, the future, and its discontents. Especially ethnifuturist and non-western perspectives, aspirational weirdness, interrogated biases, and #botiliciousness. ▲ PRINTERNET—reading, writing on the internet, bookforms, the attention economy ▲ DISPATCHES—dispatches from a place, or time, and also reviews from «inside» a piece of media ▲ TOPOGRAPHIES—architectural, urbanist, ecologies, surfaces/terrains ▲ INSTAGRAMMATOLOGY—media, social or otherwise, still and moving images, memory and retronostalgia ▲ VOICINGS—personal narratives, interviews, momelaninmoproblems.
We’re also looking for CITY CORRESPONDENTS, especially outside of North America & Western Europe.
