phati’tude Literary Magazine publishes three columns that appear regularly in most issues: OF NOTE, THIS AND THAT and THE FINAL WORD. Some columns have recurring monthly contributors, but we are open to considering any and all of your ideas. We are also on the look-out for long-term columnists for each column.
OF NOTE highlights a writer who has had an influence in the literary community. It could be about a recent achievement, acknowledging mastery of craft, or a memorial. Appreciation of a particular writer should answer two questions: What can readers learn from this writer? What has this writer contributed to our culture? Word count is 500-750 words with photo.
THIS AND THAT
Usually written in the first person, THIS AND THAT is a multi-topic column that covers everything from politics and opinions, to ideas and cultural observations. Word count is 1,000-2,000 words and it is run with artwork.
THE FINAL WORD
THE FINAL WORD is literally the “final word” because it appears at the end of the issue. The column covers opinions, observations and developments in the literary world. We’re looking for first-person reflections with an intellectual as well as personal focus. Word count is 1,200-2,000 words and runs with columnist’s photo.
