ANTIGRAVITY is a free, monthly magazine published in letter-sized “pony tab” black and white newsprint and distributed throughout the New Orleans metro region. Current COVID-19 era print run: 4,000 copies monthly (5,000 as of the January 2021 issue). We specialize in original content that spotlights New Orleans artists and those passing through. Our coverage also includes politics and social justice issues, food, reviews, opinion pieces, comics, and original photography, focused mainly on the metro New Orleans region and South Louisiana. ANTIGRAVITY is in its 16th year (190+ issues) and comes out the first week of every month.
HOW TO PITCH:
ANTIGRAVITY specializes in under-documented stories and artists, though we do occasionally cover larger, more high-profile stories and artists. The monthly content of ANTIGRAVITY is largely writer-sourced. We do not usually assign pieces; instead we count on our contributing writers to present ideas, subjects, artists, etc. that they are specifically interested in.
*You should be familiar with ANTIGRAVITY content before you pitch. Our content varies wildly between music, culture, and political themes. Your pitch should be timely and as specific and detailed as possible.
*If you have previous writing samples, please include up to 3 in your email.
*Pitches should include a timeline for completion of the piece and the corresponding ideal issue month.
*Word count is not important when pitching, but for reference, our features usually run from 1,500 to 3,000 words.
*We do our best to respond to all pitches, but we are sometimes inundated.
