COMPOUND

Staff


The Staff here at Compound are from different walks of life and hold different view points on a lot of issues. The one thing we have in common is that we all love sharing our experiences, ideas and view points on the things that make our world tick. Sure, it’s not exploding tacos or girls jumping on trampolines but we’d like to think we still hold SOME entertainment value.

STEVEN BOWERSOX

COLUMNIST —— “LIFE IN THE FAT LANE” and “FAGGING IT UP”

My name is Steve, I recently turned thirty years old. I am a gay man who lives is bumfuck Illinois. I have known I was gay since I was twelve and had my first sexual experience. I am still in the closet, but I hope over the next year for that to change.

I graduated from high school in 1998 and attended college briefly, and unfortunately had to leave to work. I was a photo lab manager for almost ten years, and I absolutely loved it. I have no real professional writing history, but I love to do it, I have maintained several blogs for years and also run two websites and assist in running a third.

I am also a morbidly obese, and have lost two hundred lbs over the last year. I have two articles in this magazine, and they are near and dear to my heart. They are “Life in the Fat Lane” and “Fagging it Up” I know that I will have a lot of fun writing these articles and they are going to be something I hope you look forward

JOSH K. LAVENDER

COLUMNIST/ FILMMAKER/ WRITER————–“THE WIDE ANGLE”

My name is Josh K. Lavender. I’m an aspiring television and screen writer, as well as director, editor, and cinematographer
for independent projects.

So far I’ve only written two movies that have seen fruition, Butcher Knife Karaoke (2007, directed by myself) and The Truth About Karma (2008, directed by Corey Lee & Brian McLaurin. I’m currently working on a new series called Rail Road Crossing while writing for Compound  as a film critic.

I’ve always had a passion for the arts with particular emphasis on cinema, and this magazine presented an excellent opportunity to express that passion as well as join a staff of writers who loved their art and weren’t afraid to venture past where the sidewalk ends and discuss subjects which could spark fierce conversations.

YOU

FREELANCE WRITER/ FREELANCE PHOTOGRAPHER/ COLUMNIST/ EDITOR

We are always open to new contributors. If you are over the age of 18 (exceptions will be made for freelance writers or artists), have passion, great written skills and the time commitment to contribute as scheduled, you would be a great fit for a growing project.

Contributing to this project is currently an unpaid gig and we aren’t looking to become the next PEOPLE magazine. That said, it does have its rewards. We are constantly aware of new and bold ideas and topics. Our schedule, while set, is flexible to a certain extent.

You can gain experience needed if you are interested in blogging or news media and if you are an independent artist, writer, or illustrator you can be apart of a growing group of individuals who will definitely make your stay more worth while.

Compound is still very new so if you enjoy being apart of a project that’s just starting, we are looking for you.If this sounds like something you might be interested in, don’t be afraid to get in touch! Tell us why you’d like to join us, what you’d like to do and send us a few samples of your work!

We look forward to your email.
