The Accidental Anthropologist

The Accidental Anthropologist is a public column at NOTES Magazine that takes a humorous perspective on politics, culture, and society; past, present, and future. Anyone can submit an article for possible publication by posting here at Notes & Grace Notes under the category tag Subs: Accidental Anthro.
The catch?
Claire and Irving are cartoon characters living inside the pages of NOTES. They have very distinctive ‘voices’ and all submissions must mimic the tone of either Claire or Irving’s narrative style. Click on an image below to visit their public profiles and to read their posted articles, both of which were published in the 1st issue of NOTES.
If NOTES chooses to publish your article submission, you will receive credit but the article will be accompanied by one of these character images and a fictional bio for one of the characters.  
We like to see articles under four thousand words (and prefer them to finish off around two thousand words) but will make exceptions for exceptional work.
