Cyber-Psychos AOD Interview Submissions
If you wish to submit an interview, you must first query to make sure
the interviewee is someone we would be interested in. We will accept
interviews which are up to 6,500 wds. If the interview is absolutely
mind-blowing we'll accept a higher count. Don't ask about submitting
types of interviews which have never come close to being in the magazine.
Go over the previously used material, plus the manifesto for the cyber-psycho subculture
(I didn't write it, but I do agree with enough of it -- particularly
the named examples), and whatever else might give you a free hint or
two at what we might be interested in. If you successfully ressurected
Lautreamont and interviewed him we would most likely accept it. Interviews
must be in Q&A format, with an introduction. The introduction should cover
most of the basics and be relatively short (one paragraph only).
The body of the interview should cover moreso philosophical grounds,
rather than "This is the new release and here is how you can buy it".
Topics of interest include the ranges of psychology, philosophy, politics
(avoid preachiness and PC head-bashing), etc, and how it applies to the
interviewee's art. You can get varied, talk about history or drugs or
insanity or death. Or whatever. Simply avoid doing interviews that look
like flat commodity advertisements.
