Starting this month, you'll be seeing more Los Angeles content on The Bold Italic. Although we've covered our unofficial southern sister city from time to time over the years, we've decided to experiment with daily dispatches from and about Los Angeles since so many San Franciscans are moving there, and since so many Angelenos live here now. Or, to put it a different way, as the borders between the cities get fuzzier from a population standpoint, we're opening up the conversations on our site to include the biggest urban areas of California.

If you live in Los Angeles and are interested in contributing to the site, there's more information here about the visual pieces we're looking for, and here is more information on the guidelines for freelance writers. You can email in to with any ideas and tips as well.
