We seek pitches from talented writers on cross-cultural topics for the inaugural issue of Perfect Strangers magazine. We value beautiful and thoughtful writing, and encourage creativity.
'Cross-cultural' may be broadly interpreted according to the interests and experiences of the writer. Examples of potential topics of interest: an analysis of the rising popularity of Turkish TV series in Latin America; a reflective essay on teaching Korean in France; an eloquent reflection upon the significance of unexpected 23andMe genetic testing results; tongue-in-cheek observations regarding a culturally hybrid culinary phenomenon; an interview with or profile of a contemporary figure who has been shaped by diverse cultural influences in fascinating ways; etc.
Interested writers are asked to send their proposed topics along with (at least) two writing samples, either attached or viewable online. For those whose proposals are accepted, compensation ranging from US$250-1000 will be provided upon acceptable completion of the assignment.
