  • Essay pieces (no editorials please)

  • Contemporary issues (not historical)

  • Papers that you wrote for classes that follow these guidelines are acceptable!

Tips & Suggestions for Getting Published:

  • The more obscure the topic and country covered, the better!

  • If it isn’t making CNN headlines, we want to hear about it.

  • Diversify your field: involve culture, science, religion, and economics.

  • Avoid mainstream issues like the Syrian refugee crisis and the rise of the right wing.

  • Avoid countries that are always in the news, like China, Russia, and the United States.

Writer's Block?

Here's what's going on around the world:

  • Ancient diseases unearthed by climate change in Siberia

  • Elephants and humans come into conflict in India

  • Mass refugee crisis in Burundi

  • Africa's first female president outlaws female genital mutilation in Liberia

  • Thousands stolen in crypto-currency in Japan.

Or brainstorm on your own. There's a lot going on around the world, and we want to showcase it.
