Fiction and Poetry
Given the high volume of fiction and poetry pieces we receive, we limit these submissions to one per print issue. If you’d like to increase your chances of publishing your fiction piece, we recommend submitting your piece for digital distribution. We feature fiction and poetry more regularly in our digital platforms.
You are welcome to submit your article in Spanish or English. One of the things we do best is translate English articles to the Spanish Language and ensure that all content is vetted through rigorous editorial quality metrics. We seek and prioritize content that is highly engaging, culturally sensitive, and culturally aware.
We receive a large number of applications to feature. When it comes to articles, we prioritize experts in their field who can speak to the issue they cover. All our content is fact and evidence-based including but not limited to subjects in the professional service fields, Humanities, Social Sciences, and STEM fields. We take fact-checking very seriously and verify all claims and statistics. Articles that are properly cited and disclose their sources will be prioritized.
We also prioritize personal stories, essays, and pieces meant to create awareness around a social issue. Our goal is to change the mainstream stories told about minorities in the United States and our mission is to change these negative stereotypes and narratives. Editorial articles, specifically, can be informed by narratives, anecdotes, and personal stories and can use hard data and references to support these narratives.
Only pieces that are culturally sensitive and culturally aware will be considered.
Always Have a Call to Action
If you want to reference a previously published article from our magazine, check out the revista articles.
- – Article needs to have a clear call to action. We want to deliver information that can be implemented immediately to everyday life. What do you want the readers to do as soon as they close the magazine after reading your article? Think of this question as a guideline to draft your call to action.
- – We want to hit three points; that the content is 1) easily applicable, 2) entertaining and informative and, 3) simple and easy to understand. The best way to hit these three points is if you imagine having a conversation with the reader directly, like a friend or a family member, and you’re educating them while inviting them to act on your advice.
- – Feel free to be casual, conversational, and creative. Rely on your knowledge and your expertise while you write.
- – Article should be between 500 -1,200 words long.
- – The article should be written as simply as possible. We won’t accept elaborate language. A good piece of writing will always be simple, to the point, and entertaining.
