Editors at Medium are looking for talented writers to contribute stories to Medium’s publications. This is an opportunity for platform writers to work more closely with our editorial team and reach a larger readership through these publications. Unpublished drafts are the preferred submission method, but published stories and story pitches may also be included depending on the publication. This list will be updated as publications are added. While we review submissions, we may not be able to respond to all of them or give feedback.
If you haven’t already, join the Medium Partner Program. Once a month you will receive a newsletter with information valuable to writers, including submission opportunities.
LEVEL is a new Medium publication that aims to fundamentally change what you think of when you hear the phrase “men’s magazine,” and to do so through and for the worldview of Black and Brown men. Our readers are intellectually curious, creatively and personally driven, and emotionally mature—they know that growth begins at 30, and evolution comes from hard conversations. Culture, sex, identity, fatherhood, career, race, friendship: It’s all fair game when you’re trying to LEVEL up. See the submissions guidelines and how to pitch here.
ZORA is a new Medium publication for, by and about women of color. The ZORA woman represents a variety of backgrounds, interests, experiences, languages and attitudes. Our content is informative as well as inspiring, and it speaks directly to the ZORA woman, in no other voice but her own. If you have a story that reflects your experiences, your thoughts, your culture or your life as a woman of color that you want to share, you can submit stories directly to ZORA’s platform editor, Jolie A. Doggett, at email@example.com.
