UPTOWN Accepting Pitches for All Sections

Freelancers looking to reach successful and ambitious African-Americans can pitch any section of UPTOWN. Current editor-in chief Isoul Harris is especially 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.
