We are currently accepting:
  • Pitches or submissions for single online articles
  • Art/photography submissions

    NOTE:
  • Submissions that reference particular photos, products, or styles should include the photos, along with citation of the photo (either the original hyperlink or the photographer/designer to whom we should credit).
  • Art/photography submissions should include a link to the artists portfolio or previous work.
  • Accepted submissions will be edited. Minor grammatical and minor content changes will be made directly by the editorial staff. More significant changes and suggestions will be sent to you for your thoughts and/or approval.

    WRITING GUIDELINES
    • Maintain a conversational tone that is thoughtful and respectful of diverse backgrounds.
    • Positive arguments advancing a position are preferred over putting down another viewpoint.
    • Support anecdotes and opinions with research or third-party data points.
    • We prefer to arrive at conclusions with utmost humility, avoiding “preachiness” and always leaving readers feeling welcomed to include their voice/perspective.
We are always looking for photographers and illustrators who are willing to let us feature their existing work (with credit) alongside our articles. We are also interested in finding artists and photographers who are available for commissions for specific articles.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself and send us a link to your online portfolio in your covering letter, so that we can see if we'll be a good match for your style. If you have a particular article or section in mind for your work, you can also mention this in your covering letter.
