Bring Fun to Intelligence at Mental Floss

At Mental Floss, knowledge isn’t just power — it’s also a whole lot of fun. Combining education and entertainment, this pub covers all academic subjects, no matter how quirky.

“We’re always seeking great feature pitches. These tend to run in the 1,800-2,500 word range and could be on a variety of topics, [including] science, history, religion, architecture, art and culture,” said senior editor Stephanie Meyers. “In the past year, we’ve explored the history of advice columns, ‘garage scientists,’ the mid-20th century paperback book revolution, and the surprisingly challenging art of making light beer, just to name a few.”
