Update #4

Send Us Your Weird Things Competition

Comment

Send Us Your Weird Things!

Welcome to the inaugural “Send Us Your Weird Things (That You Brought Back From a Trip) Competition!” Nowhere magazine is offering $100 and your very own article in Issue 6 for the best found object brought back from a journey. Skeleton keys, fishbones, wishing stones, belt buckles, jewelry boxes, souvenirs, knickknacks and bric-a-brac all fit the bill. Your object will be scanned in by our scanning professionals and presented with your description to the world in our new department, “Found.”

All you have to do is take your phone or camera, snap a picture of the thing and send it in with a 200-word description of what it is, where you found it and why you thought it was special enough to lug home.

Entry is free. Send submissions to nowheremag@gmail.com.

    Nowhere Editor Porter Fox and Photo Editor Sara Mayti will fly to your town and put on a one-day writing and photography workshop for up to 12 participants. (You pay here, then charge students a fee to attend.) This is a hybrid workshop meant to 1) develop skills by cross-teaching and 2) help aspiring journalists learn to shoot and write their own stories. Workshop includes private manuscript and portfolio editing, group workshopping and lectures. All participants get lifetime subscriptions to Nowhere, the SOMEWHERE collector's edition, ebooks and party invites. Porter Fox has taught writing for The New York Times Knowledge Network, The Writer's Workshop, Gotham Writer's Workshop and 826 NYC. Sara Mayti teaches at PhotoManhattan and privately.
