Satirical magazine Defcon is looking to launch itself into the internet age and is seeking local writers to get involved.
After a long, long hiatus Defcon magazine is planning an online magazine and a fanzine. The original magazine's focus on what could be described as something between satire and therapy will still be in there, but it will also have a broader cultural focus. It will be North-West centric but highly international. If you imagine that it is as focussed on the North West as a gritty ITV detective series might be, but understands that there are policemen everywhere, then you will be close enough to the truth. The North West focus will predominately be within features, previews and interviews. Other sections will be a free for all.
