Areas of Contribution

F2F Magazine currently accepts contributions in the following areas:

Regular Articles

F2F Magazine’s regular articles are thoughtful, informative pieces of roughly 1,500 words. Articles can be case studies, opinion pieces, analyses, studies, and other types of perspective on the Hiphop culture and related areas.

Short News

Our short news section is intended to bring attention to interesting developments in the HipHop community, and to connect people to interesting new resources, information, and humor that may not warrant an entire regular article. We can never keep up with high-volume hiphop sites like XXL or All HipHop, so we’re looking for things that might have slipped through the cracks, or information that may come from other industries.


Process

We leave the selection of topics for articles up to our contributors, and rely on contributors to help set the direction of our editorial by deciding what topics are compelling, innovative, unique, or underexplored. We can work with you to develop topic ideas and content, help you editing, or provide whatever assistance you need.

Before writing your article, we recommend that you first discuss the topic selection with us. We can help you choose amongst topics, or focus a topic to be best for our audience.

After settling on a topic, it’s usually best to create an outline before beginning writing so we can help you further focus the content before you commit too much time. Once you have feedback from our team on your outline, you can submit a first draft at anytime. If you already have an article written, please feel free to submit that without an outline.

After your contribution has been submitted, it will go through our editorial process and we will work with you on any necessary adjustments and your article is published on F2F Magazine. We usually only go through one draft with our contributors. We’re lucky enough to work with people who already have strong, focused ideas, so the only draft review tends to be a copy editing exercise. If you need more help in developing an article, though, we’re happy to provide it.

Before your article is published we will ask for your biographical details to fill out your author profile. You can send this to us along with your outline or first draft or anytime before publication. This information includes:

A short bio (2-4 sentences)

A long bio (as long as you want)

How you’d like your name to appear on our site

Your title and company name, if applicable

Your area of expertise 

Any links to websites or social tools (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Flikr, RSS, etc.)you’d like to share

The title of any books that you have written

A headshot, cropped square to 300×300 px. If you send us a large photo, we can crop it for you


Style Guidelines

Since F2F Magazine is a magazine and not a blog, we have to be careful with some aspects of the style of the articles we publish. We want our content to read like a magazine and we feel that the credibility of our content can be undermined by an overly conversational presentation. Please don’t take this to mean that your article needs to be stiff or dry, or that you need to remove your personality from it., we just try to stick to a more expository style using the third person so it reads like a periodical, rather than as opinion in a blog.


Article Length

The articles that are published on F2F Magazine are limited to around 1,500 words. We occasionally publish longer pieces if they are broken up with strong organization and graphics, or if they’re feature quality. Short articles are great too; people often have very substantive things to say in 500 words or less.

You retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in content you submit, post, or display on or through F2F Magazine. By submitting, posting, or displaying the content you give F2F Magazine a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute the content.
