The Esperanza Project welcomes submissions from journalists, writers, photographers and videographers at all stages of their careers who are interested in working to shift our global culture to one of respect for all life. If you are an activist who would like to see your work represented in this magazine, we would like to hear from you, as well.
Please read the following guidelines and study our website before making submissions. We prefer to receive pitches from beginning writers, rather than the completed story, so we can guide the process. Please study our website before sending us your proposal.
We are currently accepting submissions in the following categories:
Nonfiction, including News, Reviews, Essays, Q&As and Interviews.
Poetry – Please send 4-5 poems in a single file. Translations welcome.
Photoessays – Please send photos as a Dropbox or Google Drive file, accompanied by captions and a brief introduction.
We prefer original pieces but are willing in some cases to republish provided the writer has explicit permission from the original source.
We are unfortunately unable to pay for submissions at this time, but will work with writers to produce a piece they can be proud of and publicize the work on our 18,000-follower Facebook page and elsewhere among our social networks.
Should your work be published elsewhere at a later date, we’d appreciate acknowledgment, with a link back to the original story if possible.
Please send your submissions and story proposals to submissions (at) esperanzaproject.com.
