Call for Submissions: Construction MagazinePosted: August 16, 2012
Construction is a political, cultural, and literary online magazine that updates 1-3 times every weekday. It is an independent start-up that does not break news but publishes critical and informative content. Since its inception in June 2011, it has featured interviews with figures such as Steve Hindy, president of the Brooklyn Brewery, and The New Yorker’s Joan Acocella; profiles of the biographer Robert Caro and the literary critic Edward Said; and Benjamin Taylor’s introduction to the selected letters of Saul Bellow; a wide array of political and cultural commentary; and a diverse, international collection of original fiction, poetry, and visual art by known and unknown artists alike. Construction exists to fill a content void left by newspapers, real-time aggregators, topic-specific sites, and personal bloggers.
