Loco Mag is a lifestyle/culture magazine based in northwest Philadelphia. At Loco, we aim to showcase the ideas, voices, and talents of college students in the Philadelphia region. We focus on culture and lifestyle relevant to college students, and emphasize this perspective in our tone and content.  In other words, this isn’t a news publication. We cover a broad range of subjects, including the arts, off-campus social events, entertainment, travel, and political news--but we are in the business of telling stories, not just filling pages. Our main goal is to publish a magazine that will not only work to connect readers to one another, but with the world around us. We want to learn your stories and hear your opinions, whether that is through writing or photo journalism- we want to broadcast you.  Loco is completely independent and we pride ourselves on showcasing writer’s honest, unfiltered voices. We are uncensored and independent, and open to hearing fresh perspectives.

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, photospreads, and fresh takes on student perspectives. We’re not strictly a news publication. We want to hear your voice and read your stories.

Our upcoming issue will be called Through a Prism. This slightly more conceptual theme broadens your horizons, you artist and maker, you, so get ready! In case you need a refresher course, a prismis, according to Wikipedia, “a transparent optical element with flat, polished surfaces that refract light.” So, whatever that means. Think Pink Floyd. Think rainbows. Think the code name for the NSA surveillance program (seriously, it’s PRISM). Type it into Google, or just sit back and think. A prism offers you a new way of looking at things. You’ve survived the first 8 months of 2017, it’s time to celebrate by freeing your mind and creating some cool shit for Loco.

Our sections include Travel, Lifestyle, Photo/Video, Entertainment, and Features. Features typically run around 1,500 words. Have more than that? Cool! If not, no worries. We’re an electronic publication so space is unlimited. We’ll accept anything from a 250 word photospread to a 500 word interview to an hour long podcast to a 2-minute video. There’s only one rule: you must be creative.

Your work will need to be submitted no later than September 27, 2017.
