Submissions

Do you have a point of view that is overlooked by newsmakers? Submit a pitch or an article to Missing Perspectives about an issue that interests you, or impacts your community. We want young women to take centre-stage in telling their own stories. We publish both opinion pieces and news stories.

What we look for

We are always on the lookout for new perspectives and stories to publish on Missing Perspectives. We are particularly interested in opinion pieces and news stories about issues that impact women and their communities on a local or regional level - but are also relevant to our global audience.

Missing Perspectives is a platform dedicated to elevating the voices of women aged 18-30, however welcome submissions from women outside of this age bracket. We have an inclusive definition of women, and welcome submissions from trans women, and those who are non-binary, gender non-conforming, and anyone who identifies as a woman in a way that is significant to them.

We accept the following submissions on a rolling basis:

  • Articles: 250 - 500 words

  • Features and interviews: 800 - 1600 words

  • Collections of photography

We commission original news reporting and investigative pieces, however prefer to work with journalists who have been referred to us from other newsrooms.

Guidelines

When submitting an article or pitch to Missing Perspectives, please note the following guidelines:

  • Submissions should include a bio of up to 100 words and a photo to accompany the piece

  • Articles should not contain any formal academic referencing (bibliographies and footnotes) and should instead use hyperlinks

By submitting an article to Missing Perspectives, you consent to our Publishing Agreement.

How to submit

Please submit your article to info@missingperspectives.com with the subject line ‘SUBMISSION - [insert name]’.

As we are run by a small team, we will aim to respond within 48 hours. We have an editorial committee that will select and review articles and pitches for publication.

The safety of our contributors is paramount, so please contact us at info@missingperspectives.com to discuss any concerns or requests (e.g. using a pseudonym).

Please note that submitting an article to Missing Perspectives does not guarantee publication on our platform.

Unfortunately, because Missing Perspectives receives a high number of submissions on a daily basis, the editorial board will have to pass on some material and cannot reply to all authors who submit content. If you do not hear from the editorial committee within 10 business days, please assume that we will not be able to publish your post. You should then feel free to publish it elsewhere.
