Sobriquet Magazine is currently seeking a cadre of literary bloggers to contribute to its new “The Literary Life” blog (http://www.sobriquetmagazine.com/books). 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  • Posts must not be published elsewhere.
  • Sample posts can be viewed here: http://www.sobriquetmagazine.com/books

    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.
