Please Welcome Daniel & Alec… And A Call For (Female) Writers

Daniel RolnikAlec Rojas

There’s a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes here at The Fox Is Black right now, and if there’s one thing I’m most excited about is getting more unique voices on the site. So after a bit of looking around, I came across two fellas that I thought fit the bill. The first guy is named Daniel Rolnik, he’s the guy on the left. Daniel lives here in Los Angeles and is the biggest ball of energy I’ve seen in my life. The guy introduces himself to everyone he runs into and he writes a mean interview. The second guy is Alec Rojas, who’s technically a legal advisor but I think another life he was some kind of shaman working for Jim Morrison. He’s got a great taste in food and music and is entrenched in the LA music scene. Daniel is going to providing daily posts on the site and Alec will be helping out much like Philip does, one or two posts a week. Please give them a warm welcome, I think you’re going to enjoy what’s coming.

But there’s just one problem… the site has become a sausage fest, and that needs to be remedied. So I’ve decided to simplify things a bit and I’m looking for two amazing female writers. It doesn’t matter where in the world you live, so long as you’re ahead of the curve on art, design, food and fashion. You know the difference between a passing fad and an upcoming trend and you want to inform people on the rad shit that’s out there. I want to find the female equivalent of me, wherever you are.

So please hit me up with an email of your work, specifically your blog that you keep freshly updated and the reasons why you think you’d make The Fox Is Black a thousand times better. Send it to thefoxisblack at gmail and be sure to title it New Writer for The Fox Is Black. We already have a couple of strong applicants but I wanted to open the flood gates a bit more. If you’re picked for a daily writing assignment, you will be paid after a short trial period.

Thanks everyone for sticking around this mad house. I promise that our content will continue to be the best, and that I’m not going to write any less, in fact, this just makes me work even harder.

    What your website NEEDS is a copy editor to catch/adjust the basic grammar errors in nearly every single post.

    “Daniel leaves here in Los Angeles”

    There. They’re. Their. Its. It’s. Your. You’re.

    You run a design blog, and I get that you’re not a professional writer, but people will take this site more seriously if you take a bit more care in the text’s presentation.

    Thank you for being conscious of ‘the sausagefest issue’! I don’t think the blog is suffering, really, but your consciousness is very welcome and will, no doubt, bring another level of depth to the blog. Nice!

    @Crim – I agree, we’re always trying hard to put the best possible stuff out there. We right pritty won day.

    @Briar – I want as many interesting opinions and ideas as possible, and having women as a part of the conversation is absolutely critical.
