General Submission Info
We publish short personal essays from AAPI women and non-binary individuals as part of the Our Voices section of our site. Our mission is to help our readers love who they are, so we look for stories that are authentic, relatable, and representative of the diverse identities and experiences of our audience.
Submissions should be between 500-750 words in length and will receive acceptance or rejection as is, so please make sure you are proud of the work you’re submitting. We publish Our Voices on an ongoing basis and review submissions in the order they are received.
We are grateful for all submissions but are unable to compensate guest contributors at this time. Our staff also work on a volunteer basis, and are not able to respond to every submission. If you do not receive an acceptance within a week, please feel free to pitch elsewhere. Submissions that exceed the word limit or are accompanied by an incomplete form will be automatically rejected.
By submitting your work, you agree to our content licensing terms.
Please email Giannina Ong, editor in chief, with your pitch.
