Aspiring Writer? Have a Fresh Take to Share? Submit to Loco Mag!

By Danita Mapes | November 4, 2022

Loco Mag is seeking college-age writers, photographers, videographers, designers, and interviewers to contribute to our latest issue! Loco is a lifestyle and culture magazine always on the hunt for new articles, photo spreads, and fresh takes on student perspectives. We are not strictly a news publication or a creative writing publication. We want to hear from you. We want your stories in your voice and your words.

Our theme for issue #67 is “Under the Influence.” If you want to talk about someone or something that’s influenced you, TikTok trends, social media, or anything else you can think of, here’s your chance!

Some keywords from the staff to help you find some potential inspiration are advertising, social media, DUI, influencers, DARE, boundaries, drugs, consumerism, alcohol, peer pressure, scared straight, lies, perspective, inspiration, role models, media, capitalism, MLM, mirroring, generational trauma, YouTubers, parents, films, and fashion.

Loco Mag’s sections include Travel, Lifestyle, AV Room (Audio/Photo/Video), Entertainment, Mood, and Features. Features typically run around 1,500 words. Have more than that? Cool! If not, no worries. We’ll accept anything from a 250-word photo spread to a 500-word interview to an hour-long podcast to a 2-minute video. Be creative, and tell your truth.

Submit your work here by Sunday, Nov. 13, 2022, at 11:59 PM.
