Submit a story idea

We are always looking for insightful work from smart writers eager to join us in creating a new narrative of what’s possible through engaging, solutions-oriented, future-looking stories. We’re partial to conversational writing that takes a curious and empathic approach to exclusive and timely stories. We also prize reporting that features underrepresented voices and perspectives from vulnerable communities.
