BRC WEEKLY newspaper seeks pre-playa submissions!

Postby BRC Weekly » Tue Jul 10, 2012 7:42 pm

From the creators of the legendary Piss Clear -- Black Rock City's much-loved alternative newspaper -- comes the "BRC Weekly," now in its third year of publication on the playa.

To check out previous issues, click here:
http://BRCWeekly.com

We are currently working on our best issue ever, and seeking submissions for articles, features, etc. Here's what we're looking for:

• Interesting articles and rants
• Infographics about Burning Man or Black Rock City
• Comics and photographs
• Items for the Playa Out/In List
• Playa Lingo

Basically, we're looking for pretty much anything you'd find in any other city's alternative newsweekly ... except that it MUST pertain to Black Rock City.

Deadline for submissions is Monday, August 13.

If you'd like to submit something, or for more information, please email editor Adrian Roberts at: brcweekly@brcweekly.com

If I find a ticket and make it out there this year, I'm definitely want to be a paperboy for brc weekly. Had a paper route as a youngster and also rode my bike everywhere, it'll be like a second childhood...simpler times(sigh)
Don't worry, it'll get weird...

Psst: email them to Adrian, don't post them here (addy in OP). I do glean ideas from ePlaya, but we don't actively look for them here.

We're just giving this a little bump as our deadline draws near - you only have until August 13th!

Have a story, a rant, a cartoon, a fake ad, photographs, some in/outs, playa lingo or anything else to submit? Now's the time to send them to Adrian Roberts at brcweekly@brcweekly.com
