What are
we looking for?

Cross-border We are looking for stories that impact or involve people across multiple boundaries- including national and other imaginary borders. ⁋

Complex Many topics require time and length to explain properly. We accept pitches for long-form articles that deal with multi-layered, context-rich stories. ⁋

Narratives Sometimes zooming in on the individual in society makes an issue crystal clear. Whether it is your own personal narrative or that of someone with a unique story, we want person-centered narratives where the main character is treated with agency and dignity. ⁋

Secret Histories The tragedies and triumphs of the past continue to affect our lives, often in surprising ways. We are keen to hear the secret histories you have stumbled on that shed light on the issues of today. ⁋

Another Look There are places, people, practices that have been ignored or gotten a bad rap because of media bias or tunnel-vision. Tell us why we’re wrong about something. ⁋

Taboos There are things that cultures and societies won’t touch- sometimes for good reasons, and sometimes for reasons that no longer make sense, or never did. We want your stories exploring the unseen taboos driving social problems. ⁋
