PopMatters seeks several essayists who are interested in writing regular, alternating essays on a range of topics in electronic music for the monthly electronic music column, The Difference Engine.
As a magazine of cultural criticism, PopMatters bridges academia and popular culture with smart, entertaining and well-researched writing. PopMatters columns are a minimum of 1,200 words and are broad in scope. We encourage the discussion of ideas over focusing on individual artists (we do a fine job of that in Interviews). See published installments of The Difference Engine here.
