It's Just Business

You Can Write For Rolling Stone Magazine If You Pay Them $2,000

You'll also owe them $1,500 yearly after the first year.

rollingstone pay us

Have you ever wanted to write for Rolling Stone magazine? Do you have $2,000 to pay them yearly instead of them paying you literally anything? Then do I have the opportunity for you!

Yes, Rolling Stone has launched what they are calling Culture Council that seeks "thought leaders" who are "cultural trendsetters" and want "the opportunity to publish original content to the Rolling Stone website." Being a part of the council means you'll have "direct access to a living, breathing think tank" so you can "influence trends, create new art, and leverage your voice to create greater impact," etc. You get the idea. It's pretty up its own ass.

All you need to do is pay Rolling Stone $1,500 yearly with a $500 upfront cost. Even better, The Guardian found that once you're in, publication of your pieces must make it through a vetting process and might not even be published.

Wouldn't it be a little more effective to have a Culture Council made up of actual folks have a real influence on culture, instead of a bunch of people who have money and some spare time? I mean, come on. This is joke, right?

If this somehow sounds appealing to you, feel free to sign up for the Culture Council here.
