We welcome freelance reporters, academics, researchers & other professionals across the globe to write for us about issues relevant to Nepal & South Asia.
- We are always looking for creative, imaginative and bold stories. We value simplistic style of writing, but that doesn’t mean we reject stylish writing skills.
- Stories can be in the form of interviews, long-form writeups – investigative or opinions, photographs & varieties of art that can be used digitally.
- Although we are keener about stories on business, finance & economy, we also welcome analytical stories about anything & anywhere if it concerns & informs our readers.
Our editorial standards are basic: stories should make sense, well-researched & written coherently.
- We are looking for data, facts, logic & coherence in our stories.We aren’t anti-anecdotalists. Anecdotes & observations are equally treasured but has to fit the context & scope of the story.
- Steer away from the use of strong technical language, jargon and bombastic words. The beauty is in writing your idea, perspective & research with simple language for a broad audience.
- There’s no word limit if the work is a good explainer. Nonetheless, writers should realise that only few people would be interested in long proses. Your work may appear as a rather boring read.
- Brevity is desirable everywhere. If you struggle to downsize your work on your own, we can cut the clutter for you.
We can also help with shaping stories & connecting with relevant resource persons.
- Of course, the English language must be better than average but if you are confident that your story holds promise, don’t hesitate, do what you have to do & leave the rest to us.
- Once we receive your story, there might be plenty of back and forth involved with the writer. We will seek clarity wherever it gets confusing & you might need to add more objectivity to your work. It will be a steep learning curve for both of us.
- We have no fixed style guide as of now; So, you’ll have to look out what’s appropriate while structuring sentences, using prepositions & punctuation. Google is a great start.
- While writing into your word file, set your word file language into UK English. Before clicking that ‘send’ button with your work, don’t forget to do a quick spelling and grammar check.
