Bluntly Magazine (bluntlymag.com), is a forthcoming Chicago literary magazine that speaks unapologetically about culture at large. We provide space for perspectives that have been shouted down, fostering candid and audacious writing that defies the noise of our everyday lives. bluntly magazine examines cultural shifts through the dissection of its objects- film, music, and literature—as well as through honest storytelling and in-depth dialogue on the topics that move us most: art, sexuality, travel, technology, canna-culture, human-interest profiles, and beyond. We seek to amplify a diverse range of voices on the eminent issues of our cultural evolution - wherever a strong and shameless stance is needed, bluntly magazine is at the frontlines.
We are currently seeking freelance blog writers, for weekly contributions. We will accept submissions on any topic so long as it adheres to the core principles of the magazine: we do not publish news pieces, but we are seeking analyses of current events as they pertain to larger cultural trends.
We prefer submissions within the 500-700 word range, but are open to longer works from the right writer on the right topic.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Compensation begins at $25-$100 per blog post, depending on topic/research/length/images, etc.
