We aim to debunk the myth that nonfiction equals boring. From works of journalism to creative nonfiction pieces to diary/journal entries and everything in between, we are open to a vast range of submissions. One of our requirements is that your work speaks to the reality of the world that you inhabit (or think you do) and presents it in all its shades and nuances. The second is that you keep in mind the prompt.

Warring for Home: Propaganda, Politics, and Proxies of the Syrian Civil War

1. The length of the submission should not exceed 2000 and should not be less than 1500 words. Please mention the word count in your submission title.

2. While we are open to articles on contemporary issues, publishing news is not our motive. A personal voice is what we will look for in the narrative.

3.You can submit a maximum of two pieces.


The brief here is to be observant. We need you to spot that which hides right under your nose; follow a trail of details to find the elusive subtext that everyone missed. You can pitch the wildest theories in your pieces, as long as you can back them up. The books you review don’t have to be on bestseller lists. In fact, we encourage you to find relevant literature that may have gone undiscovered.

    1. The word limit is a maximum of 1000 words.
    2. You can submit a maximum of two pieces to this section.
    3. Entries to this section will be accepted throughout the year and published periodically, independent of the journal’s regular schedule.
