Join The Pandora Society Writing Team
Ladies and Gentlemen, as this site grows so does its demand for more articles and a greater variety of voices, therefore we invite you to write for us.
The Pandora Society’s origins are rooted in Steampunk, but the site and the events have evolved to encompass all forms of retro-futurism . . . Elements of the Past & Elements of the Future!
Our articles range from Steampunk and Neo-Victorian through the various eras to Cyberpunk and the future. Our style might be considered Geek Chic. We are interested in all sorts of counter culture that does not conform to the world of the mundane, and seek weekly contributors on the following topics:
- Books & Comics
- Drinks & Mixology
- Prop Making
- Science (both past and current)
- Short Stories & Poetry
- TV & Film
- History of the 18th, 19th, and 20th century
- Web Series
Articles need to be around 300 to 800 words in length with pictures for about every 200 words; if your piece runs longer than 800 words we can serialize it. Profanity, explicit sexual content, or excessively violent content is not allowed. All written material must be original (i.e. not copy and pasted), and photo sources must be accredited. This is a general outline and exceptions can always be negotiated.
Aside from the glory and kudos of being published on The Pandora Society dot com, we can also offer some compensation for your efforts. Each post earns the writer an Article Ad ($20 value) to promote your business or projects. Writers also earn tickets to The Pandora Society’s annual events:
- Voodoo Carnival – February ($20 value)
- International Steampunk Symposium – April ($70 value)
- Midsummer Masquerade – July ($20 value)
- Time Travelers’ Ball – October ($20 value)
- Pandoracon – November ($60 value)
There are also opportunities for writers to receive press badges to other shows, and regular writers for The Pandora Society will be invited to appear as speakers at either the Steampunk Symposium or Pandoracon. Later, as the site grows and advertising revenue increases, we will be able to compensate writers with money, but in the meantime advertising and tickets are what we are able to offer.
Interested? If so, please CONTACT US to express your interest in writing for the Pandora Society.
