Salaam! Interested in writing for The Iranian? That’s great!

What we’re looking for:

  • Analysis: Reporting on foreign policy, human rights and politics that impact Iranians.
  • Portraits: Show us an inside look at people and groups outside or inside Iran making a difference. Whether it’s an artist, entrepreneur, non-profit or activist, we love giving the spotlight to those who deserve it.
  • Diverse voices: Diversity in writing matters to us. Our job is to inform an increasingly diverse Iranian diaspora, and we can’t do that alone. Intersectional analyses covering, the medias portrayal of Iranians/Muslims, race and sexuality are of particular interest.

Of course, you can pitch us on other topics if you have an amazing story — but these are the areas we’re most interested in receiving pitches about right now. If you’re interested in telling a story in a different way (first-person narratives, graphics and illustrations, comics, etc.), we’re open to that too.

To pitch a story, drop us a note at info [at] iranian [dot] com with “Story idea” in the subject line.
