Take Over Culture Study for a Week
I’m looking for pitches for people to take over Culture Study for the week. Your responsibilities would be:
A media-related prompt for the Tuesday Thread
A Q&A with a subject of your choice for the mid-week post
A broader prompt for the Friday Thread
A short essay (~1000-2000) words for the Sunday Post
A short list of “Things I Read and Loved” for Subscribers, to be included in the Sunday Post
The first four items would be filed on April 15th. The total rate is $2000, and will be paid to you upon publication in May.
Pitches should include your specific ideas for the first four sections and indicate a familiarity with Culture Study content, threads, and readers, all of which you can find by exploring the newsletter in depth. I’d also love for the person to engage in comments/threads at their convenience. I’m particularly interested in pitches from people whose perspective and identity are not identical to my own (aka, that of a straight, white, cis-gendered woman who grew up middle-class and went to college).
Email pitches to annehelenpetersen at gmail dot com with “CULTURE STUDY TAKEOVER” in the subject line. Deadline is March 1st. I will respond to every pitch after that date.
If you have questions, feel free to ask in the comments below — other people probably have the same ones!
