We are always looking for intelligent writers who are willing to provide exceptional analysis of book culture, particularly as it relates to technology and the culture at large. Right now, we are most interested in reviews writers, but are also looking for feature writers. We can’t offer much right now in terms of compensation except to say that writing for Critical Margins will give you a chance to experience the rough and tumble of internet publishing and to gainrecognition and respect from peers along the way.
Here are some details of the types of articles we are always looking for:
Reviews: In general, review articles will be between 500 to 1,200 words long. Since we are a startup organization, we’re open on what types of books you choose to review, but we are especially interested in reviews of books published exclusively (or primarily) on reading devices such as the Kindle or iPad. We also want reviews of books published by independent and small presses.
Features or news: These articles are open to many possibilities. Since our focus is on book technology, keeping up with the latest developments in the world of publishing might elicit an original idea. Also, we’d love to hear from people interested in theoretical or scholarly approached to publishing and book technology that can write about such things in short, easy to understand pieces.
If you’d like to pitch a feature or become a regular review writer, please e-mail the editor, Kevin Eagan, at email@example.com
