YOU’RE A WIZARD, HAIRY!
Once again, WORN is putting out a call for submissions. This time, though, we’re looking for something a little different…
Issue 15 (due for release in autumn 2012) will be entirely on the theme of HAIR. And we’re not looking for the same old ‘do. This is your chance to really explore the long and short of it. We want hair-centric themes that touch on fashion, history, art, culture, and interesting people from angles outside the mainstream.
As always, we’re looking at YOU. Don’t hide your genius under your hat!
SMART IS SEXY
We are especially interested in research pieces that will explore hair from a smart and unique point of view. (Explore how the return of the herring-bone braid shows a rising political dissatisfaction with the ecological sustainability of corporate fisheries… or something more plausible.)
BUT ALSO, CONSIDER THE KITCHEN SINK
Feeling less cerebral? We’re also totally willing to consider thoughtful and amusing. WORN wants your personal stories and musings about hair that are original and culturally diverse.
OH, YOU LITERARY FOOL!
Submit your pitch no later than April 5th, 2012. BUT WAIT! Before you send us your idea, have a look at our How to Submit page. It will give you a good idea of what we’re looking for in a pitch. (It’s not all vintage typewriters and skewering back your artfully unkempt locks with a No.2 pencil, you know.)
