If you would like to write an article for us, you can submit either a short proposal, or ‘pitch’, or a full article. We regularly feature short analytical pieces, interviews, stories, opinion pieces, and photo essays on our platform. We also love to receive both film and book reviews; please check our list for suggestions if you are unsure where to start. 

If you send a full article, please put a summary of no more than 100 words at the top of it. If you want to submit a photo essay or some other visual content, please include some of your previous work or portfolio.  

Our aim is to respond to every submission within three weeks. Since we work as a non-profit, we are unable to pay for any submitted content.

Please check our conditions and make sure you’re happy to accept them before you decide to submit. By submitting a text, you give us permission to make reasonable edits, make suggestions, and publish it under your name. To make sure that your text fits our format, check our editing guidelines before submitting.

We offer every contributor:

  • editorial support and proofreading
  • an audience of 10,000 readers per month
  • publicity from our social media marketing team
  • a publication to put on your CV
  • access to professional and academic opportunities through our network
