BREAKING NEWS: We're a Part of the Colloquial Now
The purpose of The Colloquial is to deliver easy and fun content about highbrow subjects. We want to tear down the gatekeepers. We want to use familiar language for complicated topics or discuss familiar topics with a more theoretical approach. You don’t have to understand a mountain of theory to feel the subversive power of Pope L’s art. It’s ok to just call it badass. That’s what The Colloquial means. It’s a fancy word to say common.
This mission is a personal one. The Colloquial Magazine was created during a time when the co-founders were all facing uncertainty. 5 friends wanting to write, create, entertain, or simply stay connected to each other. We know we aren’t going to be the the best writers or covering the hottest topics, but we also know we can provide a voice and perspective that has value.
