Deconstructing an article going into publication at Matador

hey everyone,

wanted to quickly direct your attention to an article i solicited from jordyn and then revised publicly in the writing labs. this piece is going into production at matador next week, and i thought it would be a good opportunity for everyone to see what we’re looking for as editors:

please note that anyone can submit article ideas to editors at matador, and that we’re especially looking for social commentary–pieces that build off your knowledge and experience in your home culture / place.

note how this piece is built around:

a. strong visuals
b. classic shared moments
c. precise names / details
d. divisive or polemic points about geography / culture

look forward to any questions / comments!
