Details is Looking for Writers With a Knack for Witty Cultural Commentary

DetailsDetails magazine is not your average frat-boy pub. You won’t find foldouts of half-naked ladies or advice on how to throw the best kegger. Instead, you’ll find the latest style trends, celebrity interviews and sections on culture, body, tech, travel and more.

So how can a freelancer get his foot in the door at this sophisticated pub? Well, lucky for you, the mag has recently broadened its FOB and is now open to more first-person narratives:

The interests and tastes of the typical Details reader (a “young, successful, urban-dwelling man”) are central to the magazine’s editorial mission, and though Details has been primarily service-oriented in the past, editors have recently begun adding more voice to the magazine through the addition of cultural essays through all sections of the front-of-book. These totally pitchable first-person pieces are rooted in cultural commentary, says [Candice Rainey, deputy editor], but are still “viewed through the lens of Details.”
