About Us

The Bold Italic is an online magazine that celebrates the character and free-wheeling spirit of San Francisco and the Bay Area.

The Bold Italic publishes first person stories by locals on issues and topics that are on the brains and lips of San Franciscans. We are not a news site, we’re a hub for conversations to be heard and discussed. Some of the pieces we publish will make you laugh. Some will have you nodding your head in agreement. And others will completely piss you off. The views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of The Bold Italic, but they are the true opinions, experiences, and thoughts of writers from the diverse community we live amongst. Whatever feelings our stories incite, we hope our continuing conversation will get you thinking, talking, and inspire you to share your opinions with us on living in the San Francisco Bay Area. If you’ve got a compelling story or perspective to share, we want to hear it.
