Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 04, 2016
The Daily Pnut, the email newsletter that delivers a daily dose of important world events with a sprinkle of satire to tens of thousands of subscribers around the world, has announced that it has partnered with New York-based media startup, Slant, to provide a platform for Pnut subscribers to create, publish and be paid for their own content.
The new partnership encourages Pnut subscribers to share their thoughts, reactions and views to the issues the Daily Pnut explores by submitting their own stories to Slant which will then be professionally edited and published on the Slant website. Slant, which combines user generated content with full editorial guidance, reported 3.4 million page views in January.
"We are excited to partner with another forward thinking media startup like the Daily Pnut. We believe this is a win-win collaboration that will enable us to continue to bring great content and writers to our readers by tapping into the global audience that the Pnut continues to build,” said Amanda Gutterman, Co-Founder & Editorial Director of Slant.
The Daily Pnut, which officially launched in December, has been using an initial $300,000 in seed financing to expand its platform and grow its editorial team. Known for their satirical, bite-sized content that looks at important global issues and events, the Pnut has seen significant growth in their subscriber base over the last few months, which includes avid readers like famed-linguist Noam Chomsky and scientist Steven Pinker.
“Our partnership with Slant aligns perfectly with our mission to make it easier for our generation to become more informed global citizens,” said Tewfik Cassis, Co-Founder and CEO of the Daily Pnut. “We love sharing our thoughts on world events with our readers everyday, but this allows the conversation to work two-ways and gives our subscribers a unique opportunity to be heard.”
The Daily Pnut and Slant have also recently collaborated on a new series that explores a fictional dystopian world where Donald Trump wins the 2016 Presidential election called “The Man in the Trump Tower.”
