DescriptionFounded in 2001 as an outlet for its editors’ frustrations with their day jobs Slant Magazine began humbly as a two-man online reviewing operation with Ed Gonzalez writing about film and Sal Cinquemani writing about music. The two covered only a smattering of the biggest releases in each field but as other writers began volunteering to work for the site its ambitions increased. Slant now boasts a healthy volume of content from a small army of unpaid contributors and has been steadily growing its readership due to its expressive writing and an editorial policy that encourages a diverse array of voices.
