THe Culture Crush
Independent Thinking On Culture And Society
Dedicated to navigating the richness of the world, and simply trying to make sense of our puzzling, mixed-up society and its emergent creative expressions.
Founded by French and Italian Vogue veteran Debra Scherer, the Culture Crush is about the people and ideas that form cultures, telling stories and connecting the cultural dots through editorial explorations.
The Culture Crush is taking submissions and pitches for both its digital and print publications and would love to work with you. So if you are working on an article, photo essay, short film, or even political cartoon that looks at culture and our society through a unique, interesting, and empathetic yet critical lens, email us with a short bio at: email@example.com. The preferred length of written work is less than 3,500 words and videos under 5 minutes, links only please.
Please put “Pitch: (The Title of your piece)”
A brief summary of the piece
Approximate word length
The Culture Crush isn’t for you, it’s for everybody. There is no certain generation or demographic we are trying to reach. Just look at communities, society, and ideas on a micro level that relate back to the macro.
Unique subcultures and in-depth looks at how they function in society
Communities formed around secret knowledge
Local stories formed around widespread cultural implications
A new or forgotten art trend/movement
What we’re not looking for:
Hot takes on current political moments
Personal essays on dating, relationships, etc
Listicles about current pop culture and celebrities
Summaries of academic works
An academic abstract packed with jargon
Don't ask to review an art exhibition
Don't tell us why an -ism is too prevalent, or an -ization needs deeper critical analysis
