We are looking for timely pitches and full articles around current events, political news, as well as both short-term and long-lead social justice concerns. Please note, these should be journalistic and editorial articles, not personal essays.  For personal essays, please submit to the creative non-fiction  department.

For all submissions, please provide a brief biography including previous  writing-related experiences and relevant publications.

For pitches, please provide a two-page proposal that includes the following:

  • An  overview of the central message of the article you propose. Preferably  three or four paragraphs — preferably anecdotal — that introduce us to  your point of view.
  • Declare what is new, innovative, useful, counterintuitive, or controversial about the topic.
  • What are the implications both in the near and long term for Asian Americans and others?
  • Why are you proposing the article? How did you happen upon the topic?
  • How did you go about researching the topic? What further research must you do? Describe your sources or other connections.
  • How long do you propose the article will be?
  • What makes you uniquely qualified to write this article?

If you are submitting a pitch, you must also include three clips of previous work.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
