Write for Retrofied

Interested in writing for Retrofied? Radical! We’re always on the hunt for talented contributors, whether you’re an experienced writer with dozens of published credits or you’re a passionate newcomer.

What we like:

Writing that analyzes nostalgia and offers a new perspective. When you pitch, remember that while we do have a few “hey, remember THIS?” -type articles, Retrofied strives to offer depth, substance, new revelations, and new commentary to help us stand out from the rest. While all of our topics are inspired by ’80s & ’90s nostalgia, we love for pieces to have present-day relevance whenever possible. Please familiarize yourself with some of our existing published work before pitching. We accept pitches for our quarterly printed magazine in addition to website and Patreon-only articles.


Retrofied contributors will receive a minimum payment of $25 per print article. Additionally, all magazine contributors will receive a printed copy of Retrofied. Web-only post contributors earn $10 per piece. While we realize this payment is not significant, it is a step in the right direction and we aim to increase compensation as time goes on. Please only consider Retrofied after exhausting options for better paying publications.

Currently Accepting Pitches:

Issue #8’s theme will be “Gross-Out Goodness.” This issue’s theme can focus on a variety of topics under that banner. We’re looking for pitches about SLIME, disgusting movies or special creature FX flicks, kids books with gross-out themes (How to Eat Fried Worms, anyone?), and more. We’re open to interpretation of the theme, and love loose fits. Not sure? Email us! Deadlines:

  • Pitches extended to September 23, 2022
  • Finished drafts due March 30, 2022
