We’re looking to publish a diverse range of voices and welcome submissions on any topic related to international politics or foreign policy.
We are unable to pay contributors, but we do offer extensive support and feedback on your articles. Our hope is that our feedback can help you strengthen your writing and that getting published on our platform can help bolster your career.
Wondering what to write about? Your article could be a reaction to a recent foreign policy decision, an international political event or a global trend.
