HERE’S YOUR CHANCE…THE NEW YORK PRESS 20TH ANNIVERSARY SEX COLUMN COMPETITION BEGINS TODAY!
If we’ve learned anything in the last year, it’s that a vast number of New Yorkers believe they have what it takes to be a sex columnist. And so, rather than picking one from the surprisingly large pool of potential weekly contributors, we’ve chosen instead to open up the process – and, in the end, let the readers decide.
Beginning today and continuing for the next three months, the New York Press will be accepting unsolicited submissions for its weekly sex column. There are no restrictions on the content, and submissions should be between 800 and 1,200 words. Each week, the editors will select one piece for publication in that week’s edition. Those weekly winners will become finalists in the competition, which will culminate in the awarding of a weekly sex column – to be launched in our 20th anniversary edition on April 23, 2008. The finalists will be chosen by the editors, and the winner selected by reader votes.
The contest begins now, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions between now and Monday, January 28th at noon will be considered for publication in next week’s New York Press. Please note: anyone whose work is published will be paid according to our regular rates.
