With the intent of providing continued intelligent and entertaining content in the PopMatters' Columns section, we are looking to broaden our staff of columnists and the voice of our writers' community.

With the intent of providing continued intelligent and entertaining content in the PopMatters’ Columns section, we are looking to broaden our staff of columnists and the voice of our writers’ community. We’re particularly interested in writers who live and work outside of the US, but that is not a deciding factor; in all cases, no matter the writer’s locale, we’re looking for those who can approach an array of cultural subject matter from their patch of the world with an international sensibility; that is, contextualize the local with an awareness of its place, historical and current, in the broader world.


Qualified writers are already readers of PopMatters (as but one vital supplement in their varied intellectual diet). They are familiar with the work of our current columnists, as well as other areas of the magazine, and they have a solid sense of what we’re looking for in content and caliber in these essays. We deliberately use the terms “essays” and “columns” interchangeably; as pieces are broad in scope yet grounded in real-world examples, and they are tied to regular deadlines and an established identity (and therein lay the “columnist” element). With these expectations in mind, we have monthly and every-other-month column slots available. Suitable writers are dedicated to regular deadlines and enjoy participating in friendly, ongoing communications with their editor.

The Difference Engine has been sitting on the blocks. Time to get this baby up and running, again.

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.

Why do modern adaptations of Shakespeare work? Yet Baz Luhrmann's adaptations of period pieces don't?

PopMatters seeks feature essays (min. 1,200 words - no max. limit) arguing the pros and cons of anachronism in film, literature, video games, music and other products of pop culture.

PopMatters is looking to expand our community of writers in the UK, particularly in the areas of music and DVDs.

DVDs

PopMatters has many connections with DVD distributors in the UK. We’re looking for UK-based folks to pen reviews on current DVD releases, as well as to write feature articles on aspects of UK film and TV culture and history.
