Submitting stories
Globe Media Asia welcomes story submissions from international, regional and local journalists who research and write stories that relate to Southeast Asia for our print magazine Southeast Asia Globe and its website,

We publish articles that are original, accurate and interesting, and that provide insight to a readership accustomed to quality content.

What we seek:

Southeast Asia Globe authors have considerable editorial freedom to cover stories from an independent and analytical point of view. For Southeast Asia Globe print and online, we look for content that either originates in the region or that is generally relevant to readers in the region. We cover current affairs, business and politics; the arts; technology and innovations; environmental issues and natural sciences; travel; and health and lifestyle. Our content ranges from feature articles to interviews, portraits, analytical pieces and photojournalism, and vary in length generally from 800 to 1,800 words.

For the website, we also seek short (300- to 800-word) informative pieces.

We do not accept pitches that aim to promote specific products or businesses.

How to pitch:

If you are interested in writing for Southeast Asia Globe, please send ideas, outlines or completed features via email to our editors. We will commission writers we have not used before, but only those whose published clips demonstrate a high proficiency in magazine writing. If you have not worked with us before, please include examples of published work.

Write what you are passionate about. Pitches should be thought out and focused, and tell a story. Like a completed story, the pitch should have a headline, standfirst and strong lead. A well-crafted pitch will usually run a paragraph or two in length and explain how the writer envisions the completed story and why it would work for Southeast Asia Globe.

Submissions may be sent to: editor(at)globemediaasia(dot)com
