Looking for volunteer writers for food magazine

April 24th, 2009  |  Published in Stumpblog, What's new  |  2 Comments

As you know (or should, because every detail of my life should be riveting to you), I’m the editor of Spezzatino magazine, which supports the Healthy Food Bank. We’re looking for volunteer writers.

We’re looking for something more unusual than the standard food magazine fare — stuff that’s interesting, innovative, insightful, maybe a little weird and at the very least with a sense of humour. We’re not interested in celebrity chefs or talking about how great Big-Name Restaurant Du Jour is. We’re not Gourmet; we’re aiming more for a Vice kind of flavour (without all the cussing).

We are looking for contributors who are interested in writing about the following general themes:

-plant-based diets / vegetarianism

We welcome proposals for articles and images that correspond to these theme areas. In particular we would appreciate pieces about “food travel”, food science, food history, food politics, and local/regional cuisines. Interviews with interesting food-related people are welcome (e.g. cooks, farmers, fishers, scientists, etc.). We will also consider poetry, short stories, restaurant reviews, and recipes that correspond to the theme areas above.

We welcome high-quality photography including photoessays or photomontage.

In return for volunteering, your work will be featured in a magazine with international circulation. You will receive a copy of your published work, which you are free to use and share as you like.

Sound good? So email me already and pitch me something. krista [at] healthyfoodbank [dot] com

    “I run a blog called The Chocolate Cult (http://thechocolatecult.blogspot.com/) where I post reviews of chocolate and chocolate related products.

    If you think your readers might be interested, I’d be happy to talk to someone at about my work.

    I have written a book on the idiocrocy of running a corporate restaurant. With some funny side stories and all. I have over 25 years in the industry and would love to volunteer some stories. Let me know if your interested.
