To submit a story idea, send a pitch, your résumé and a list of your published works to [email protected].

Please note that while we read every pitch we receive, we are unable to respond to each one. We are no longer accepting fiction or poetry submissions.

Pitches should be no longer than 400 words. Please familiarise yourself with the published stories in our archive to get a sense of the themes, approaches and style that appeal to our readership.

Pitches for photo essays should consist of at least twenty images from the proposed series, along with a written description of 200-300 words, all in a single PDF file. We prefer photo essays that offer a narrative rather than ones focussed on news coverage alone. Please do not send zipped folders of high-resolution images with your proposal.
