‘Paper’ Likes ‘Undiscovered’, Deletes ‘Edgy’

Paper magazine has been covering the indie scene for 27 years. That’s even before indie was mainstream. To this day, they stick with that perspective, seeking out stories and pitches about art, music, fashion, and culture focused on things that are still undiscovered.

Of course, many people interpret the magazine’s indie focus as “edgy” or “alternative.” Wrong move.

Paper has this fun, irreverent voice. It’s an interesting tone.”
