Vivid Scribe is currently accepting submissions from writers for articles to be published in our Reviews, Features and Five by Scribe sections. We also have opportunities for writers interested in putting together their own columns.
Reviews can be of films, television programs, books, comics, collectible toys and all manner of games that are either new or old. Reviews are expected to be written in a casual, yet intelligent style. Reviews should be between 250 – 1000 words.
Feature articles are like casual essays. Features can be written about films, albums or musicians, television programs, books, comics, toys or games either new or old, or they can be written about anything culturally appropriate for these categories. Topics can either be broad or very focused. It’s fine to include some amount of review style opinion in your feature articles, however the bulk of the writing should be more of a meaty analytical discussion of the chosen topic.
Feature articles should be between 700 – 2000 words. Enquires about writing longer or shorter pieces can be made via email.
Five By Scribe
Five by Scribe is a “Top Five” style section, where 5 examples of whatever topic are briefly discussed. These don’t necessarily need to represent the best (or the worst) 5 of anything, but should provide a good survey of the chosen topic. Five by Scribe articles should include an introduction to the topic, usually 50-200 words, with a brief 100-200 word rundown for each of your 5 examples. You can also include a justification on why you chose your particular 5.
Have an idea for a continued run column on any aspect of pop culture? Tell us your ideas and we’ll see what we can work out (note – we’re pretty good at working stuff out).
Some amount of academic style writing is acceptable for all sections, however please ensure your article would able to be clearly understood by our readers – intelligent people, who may or may not have specialist academic knowledge in popular culture.
If you would like to submit an article for publishing on Vivid Scribe, please send your submission and a little bit about yourself in an email to email@example.com. Please ensure you include the word SUBMISSION in the subject line of your email and also indicate which section of the site you’re writing for. eg – SUBMISSION for Five By Scribe; SUBMISSION for Feature Articles; SUBMISSION for album review. You get the idea.
At this stage, Vivid Scribe cannot pay you any money for your articles. Your name and bio will be published on the site (if you want it to be), and full ownership rights will belong to the author.
