New Writers Welcome in Boston

Boston has a dependable roster of writers to turn to, which is no surprise considering all its accolades. The mag has won over 50 City & Regional Magazine Association awards for reporting, public service and general excellence. Luckily for intrepid reporters and talented writers, Boston is “absolutely open to new blood at all times,” says editor-in-chief John Wolfson. “We’re always looking to expand.”

If compared with similar publications, “Perhaps the greatest differentiator,” Wolfson said, “is that we run several high-quality stories a month at 3,000-5,000 words, allowing us to do deep-dives into the issues, stories and personalities our readers care about.”
