Cover Black Entertainment for UPTOWN

Freelancers looking to reach successful and ambitious African-Americans can pitch any section of UPTOWN. Current editor-in chief Isoul Harris loves pieces that tap into black Hollywood, but he is also looking for material that will help beef up the bimonthly publication’s coverage of politics, as well as investigative and research articles that explore country-wide issues. “Especially with the re-election of Barack Obama, I think it really said a lot about this new America that we live in, and I want to the magazine to be reflective of that.” he said.

Although all of the printed content is eventually posted at uptownmagazine.com, editors are also looking for originaly, buzz-worthy articles for the website, as well.
