Philebrity Is Now Publishing Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry And Maybe Even YOU!

This is the late, great Philadelphia noir fiction writer David Goodis. He is dead, so he cannot submit work to Philebrity. But you are alive. You can!

Our regular readers all know that over the last month or so, Philebrity has made some major changes: No more reblogs/all original content, new events calendar, and just a general fix-up-look-sharp vibe. (Oh, and all the ticket giveaways are on Instagram now: follow us!) Well, those changes are ongoing, and here’s where you (maybe, possibly, might) come in, as we are looking for new voices to add into the mix. What kind of voices? Let’s not put too fine a point on it and simply say compelling Philly-based voices with unique stories to tell. You might have seen Randy LoBasso’s piece on why we shouldn’t be calling car crashes “accidents” anymore; or maybe you’ve seen Shawn Kilroy’s occasional poems (we are kind of obsessed with those); or Andrew Chalfen’s piece on the Soda Lobby in Philly. Well, we’re looking to do more of that. This weekend, we’ll be publishing an excerpt from novelist Erik Bader’s new work in progress, and certainly more stuff like that down the line. (And hopefully less and less white men all the time, it’s like Record Store Day in here.) Point is: Have you got a pitch (or already existing piece of work) that you think might be a good look for Philebrity? Well, by all means, query us at tips@philebrity.com. Just a line or two, and some sample copy will do.
