here at sinkhole, we’re explorers, not explainers – our goal is to chart the world's complexities, to resist the echo chamber, and to engage in the difficult work of empathy.
things we’re interested in: socioeconomics, politics & government, environment, foreign policy, social justice, business, law & order, science & technology, history, education, and/or the commingling/collapse of any of these categories into each other.
forms we like: literary journalism, analysis/synthesis, essays, interviews, graphic and/or photo essays, video, podcasts, or just surprise us.
word limits: we don’t care how long it is – if it’s good, it’s good.
PS - we'd love to see some column pitches.
things we're interested in: oh, culture classics like booksmoviesmusicinternet, but we really love stuff that's off the beaten path, too: reviews of apps (smartphone and restaurant), arguments against weekends, what drink to pair with which brand of cigarette, Top Chef Season 4 retrospectives, and more. specificity reigns. we also love hot takes on lukewarm subjects, and vice versa.
forms we like: essays & interviews, mostly, but hell, send us your videos & your songs & your photos - we'll throw em' up on social media if we like em'. if your meme or GIF game is strong, we want readers to know.
word limits: just please be reasonable.
PS - like those guys in capital, we're open to pitches.
