Submissions Wanted for The Smart Set

Jason Wilson, a former editor-in-residence at Emerson and the editor of the annual best in travel writing collection, has relaunched a version of H.L. Mencken's Smart Set magazine. It's published in conjunction with Drexel University and is an online publication. You can find it at The Smart Set.

Jason e-mailed me to let me know that The Smart Set is looking for good columns. The publication pays. Jason wrote:

"...I wanted to see if you'd pass along to the students the opportunity to write for The Smart Set. We pay $200 for 800-1000 word columns. We're looking for stuff for several of our open columns--Pertinent & Impertinent (on culture), Something Personal (personal essay/memoir); On Dining (essays on food & culture); Grand Tour (short travel essays). In fact, please pass this along to any of your graduate writing students who might be interested."

Take a look at the publication before pitching him. His e-mail address is jason@thesmartset.com or jasonwilson@snip.net.
