New Writers Welcome at The Source

When The Source first launched back in the 80s, it set itself apart from other fan magazines by digging deeper into hip-hop culture. Today, the mag stays true to that, albeit with a broader audience. The freelancer-friendly pub has wider demographics and covers much more of the industry now that YouTube stars are turning rap hits into country covers. And, lucky for you, 60 percent of its content is written by freelancers.

Source veteran Kim Osorio has rejoined the pub as EIC and is committed to working with new and up-and-coming writers. In fact, she estimates that as much as 10-15 percent of the content each month comes from first-time freelancers. “It helps to have fresh ideas coming from people who aren’t in the day-to-day grind of hip-hop,” she said.
