The next issue of Christ and Pop Culture Magazine will be about “Making fun,” and we’re looking for one feature article on this theme. The feature should address in some way the role of mockery or “making fun of” people/things in our culture. We pay $50 for each feature accepted and published. If you think you have a good idea for an article, send a one-paragraph pitch to christandpopculture@gmail.com.

Pitch Deadline: We will make the decision by Saturday the 20th at midnight, if not sooner. We typically decide on the pitches as they come in, so the sooner the better.

Guidelines:

Do not send a full article unless your pitch is accepted; we won’t have the time to read unsolicited pieces.

Keep your pitch to one paragraph. Include a thesis and some ideas about how you will develop your thesis throughout the piece.

These are magazine features, so the finished piece should be something more than just a long blog post. These are should be insightful, detailed, original, well-crafted pieces.

Include a two-sentence bio to help us understand why you would be qualified to write on this topic.

Include links to two or three articles that you have published, even if it is your own blog (but preferably at other publications).

Keep our audience in mind. We recommend reading a few of the features we’ve published in the past to get a sense of the kinds of articles we run.

Pieces should be between 1.5k-3k words when finished.

If we choose your article, we will need a full draft of the article by Tuesday, September 23rd. If we choose your article, you will need to be available for revisions during that week.

Again, please send this pitches to christandpopculture@gmail.com. Please keep in mind that we are unable to respond to all pitches.

If you have not read CaPCMag before, I recommend becoming a member and reading our recent issues as well as last year’s volume!
