Litereati - Adventures for Chicago Foodies Message Board › Help Start a Foodie Lit Magazine! (Seeking Writers, Artists and Photographers)
Here's a great opportunity to create something spectacular:
Seeking talented, passionate creative types to launch a culinary literature magazine showcasing the very best in food writing and art: short stories (foodie fiction), essays, poetry, photographs, graphic novels, journalistic pieces, illustrations, etc. This is a fantastic opportunity to:
* Gain valuable experience in writing, editing, and promoting a critically important publication
* Publish your own work, build your byline and gain exposure
* Create something beautiful and meaningful that'll be read and cherished by chefs, foodies and writers all over the world.
* Meet, connect with, and be inspired by other cool, creative people!
If you're a writer, blogger, editor, graphic artist, photographer or cartoonist -- amateur or pro, previously published or not -- we'd like you to join us. All experience levels, voices, ages and styles are encouraged to participate. We've already laid the groundwork with a kick-ass website, blog and social media presence, but we need YOU to make this magazine really rock!
You must be able to commit to one fun and motivating get-together each month for face time, socializing, brainstorming and progress updates. Otherwise, we'll communicate primarily via email (we all have busy lives.) Our magazine will be published quarterly (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) with the first issue coming out September 1st. Please note that this is not a paying gig (at least not yet), but rather a 'labor of love' for people who love food, writing, creativity and life.
If this idea excites you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what skills you plan to bring to the project. We'll answer all inquiries with more information about this amazing project.
