Underground news and reviews website needs creative contributors ASAP.
On May 1st 2009, a new website for London's underground will be launched. Thoughtcrime.org.uk aims to cover all of London's free and not-for-profit underground scenes, and to do that it'll need help from you!
Thoughtcrime.org.uk is currently seeking regular correspondents and contributors. Potential correspondents need not have been published before, but they do need a fairly solid background in at least one of the following areas:
Underground Arts i.e.:
- Squatted or not-for-profit galleries, exhibitions and networks
- Unsigned and/or political bands
- Free festivals
- Underground fanzines or websites
- Squat parties
- Direct action
- Women's issues
- Race and immigration issues
- ID and privacy issues
- Squatter's rights
- Community building
- Environment and climate change
- Animal welfare
* If there's anything I've left out of the list please feel free to suggest it... or better yet, send me a piece you've written about it!
Every month, correspondents will be asked to to send in an article of 200 words or more or one set of photos/images or video. If particularly busy, correspondents can choose to contribute on alternate months instead - the main thing is to be consistent. One-off contributions will be accepted as often as space allows, although regular correspondents will get priority.
Some of the types of things Thoughtcrime.org.uk will publish are: opinion pieces, news items, essays, photographic essays, videos, upcoming event listings, music reviews, artwork and prose. However, because Thoughtcrime.org.uk is coming from a creative angle, variations and inventions of the above will be accepted, so long as they're good quality.
Thoughtcrime.org.uk will value style as much as it does substance, so contributors with character and a unique perspective are especially welcome.
The site is non-profit and ad-free so no one, myself included, will be paid for their contributions. However I'd ask that any work sent in meets these three criteria:
1) It should be written by and for Londoners
2) It should relate to current events
3) It should not published on other websites
(Obviously, prejudiced or malicious work of any sort will not be accepted.)
All correspondents and contributors will naturally retain their copyrights and full control over their work.
Above all else,Thoughtcrime.org.uk will be a collective site and all contributors will be encouraged to share their ideas and suggestions in order to make it better.
So if you love the undergound and want to share your thoughts on it with the rest of London, please email them ASAP to email@example.com.
