As you may or may not already know, Krishtine, Russell, Peter, Tika, Colin and Krystal, are six aspiring writers all competing to become the new Contributing Editor at Rolling Stone. Last summer, these six were chosen from a pool of thousands of applicants and thrown directly into the mix with a wide array of writing assignments including artist and entertainment profiles and coverage of national affairs, politics and pop culture. Some of the musical acts featured in the series include Band of Horses, Ghostface Killah, We Are Scientists, The Roots, Lupe Fiasco, and more. The young writers compete with one another for story assignments, stress about hitting deadlines and face no-holds-barred critiques from Rolling Stone editors, all while dealing with their own personal challenges.
