PopMatters seeks essays speculating what the future holds for the prolific Joss Whedon, and topics in the Whedon cannon that deserve a closer look, for forthcoming eBook.

Pitch Deadline: 9 February 2015
Final Essay Deadline: 12 March 2015

Email subject line: What Can We Expect from Joss Whedon?

We all know and love Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, The Avengers, and the other big Whedon projects. But what’s on the horizon? Giant Marvelverse movies and tie-in shows? What about the smaller, long-rumored projects like Doctor Horrible 2, Ripper, Wastelanders and The Serving Girl?

Whedon recently created Bellwether Studios to produce Much Ado About Nothing and In Your Eyes. Will he do more more Shakespeare, like Hamlet? Film his decades-old scripts, like Afterlife? What of the beloved superhero, Wonder Woman?

Got something to say about pop culture that's worth a listen? Well blah, blah, blog about it!

Informed, intelligent, engaged and engaging writing (ergo, engaged thinking) is the hallmark of PopMatters. Our writers are cultural generalists with a broad range of interests; thus, our scope is broadly cast on all things pop culture. However, you don’t always have to write a 2,500-word essay to capture (and keep) our interest. PopMatters blogs, which are very popular with our hip, informed readership, run the gamut of topics in culture, and we’re looking for people who love to blog about all the world’s cultural offerings. Indeed, we encourage you to explore all mediums, and express most thoughtfully on all that you see, hear, read, play, watch, do.

The past is a vast, swirling landscape of liquor, literature, art, music, film, fashion...! It’s a world rich with passions of so many persuasions.

Pitch Deadline: None. This is a standing call.

There was a time, late 19th/early 20th century or thereabouts, when people, many of them the fashionable French, ventured out to public establishments to imbibe in, among other things, an herbal/licorice/mind-bending brew distilled from the essence of the inelegantly named ‘wormwood’ plant, which resulted in the poetically named ‘absinthe’ cocktail. Deep within absinthe’s perplexing, complex concoction the “Green Fairy” resided. She is named the “Green Fairy” due to her glowing color and the muse-like inspirations she cast upon some suggestible minds (many quite famous minds, at that). Indeed, absinthe was a fashionable drink among the Parisian artist and intellectual class. You know; those Bohemian-types that so raise the ire of the uptight, fuddy duddy social conservatives and prohibitionists that exist in all societies throughout the world, throughout all time.
