Foreign Policy Rising is a platform for women of all ages and experiences (including students and recent graduates) writing on foreign affairs. We aim to amplify, elevate and increase women's voices in international political journalism.
We are currently looking for voluntary Contributing Writers, who can be based all around the world and work on a remote basis. We accept original articles between 700 and 850 words on a wide range of topics. What makes us different is that we work closely with our contributors to help them become stronger and more confident writers with each submission.
We’re looking to publish a diverse range of voices and welcome submissions on any topic related to international politics or foreign policy. All submissions must be original and exclusive to Foreign Policy Rising. Please also note that the articles we publish are the authors’ own opinions and do not necessarily reflect the views of Foreign Policy Rising or its editors.
Role and Responsibilities
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. You could analyze a pressing international challenge or offer some potential solutions. The main criteria is that you write about something that moves you.
Articles should be around 800 words and written in your own voice. They should read like op-ed pieces rather than academic articles. We aim to reach a broad audience of readers, from academia to the general public, so that means avoiding excessive jargon.
Send a short pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org outlining your main ideas. We’ll offer you some advice or tell you to go ahead and get started.
