Sobriquet Magazine is currently seeking a cadre of literary bloggers to contribute to its new “The Literary Life” blog. The blog aims to provide readers with intelligent, thoughtful reviews of contemporary literary fiction. We are interested both in recently-published books and older, lesser-known works.

A few guidelines for potential contributors:

  • Though reference may certainly be made to other texts, posts must focus on a single work.
  • Writers should aim to build each post around an element of critical insight.
  • Our ideal audience includes both professional scholars and non-academics, so posts should not be written in prohibitively abstruse academese.
  • Writers are encouraged to link to relevant websites.
  • Posts should run between 500 and 1250 words.
  • All posts will be vetted.
  • Comments to posts will be moderated, but authors are strongly encouraged to participate in discussions and flag inappropriate comments.
  • Posts must not be published elsewhere.
  • A sample entry may be viewed here: http://www.sobriquetmagazine.com/books/2010/06/j-g-ballards-running-wild...

    If you are interested in writing for Sobriquet Magazine’s The Literary Life, please send a CV, a brief writing sample, and an idea or two for a post to email@sobriquetmagazine.com. Please indicate that you are submitting for the blog in the subject line of your email.
