Spectacles  — 02 December 2021

It's a weird time to be a young person. If you're a fan of Spectacles, you probably agree that democracy isn't in the best shape and that legacy leaders in media and politics don't seem to have a handle on the gravity of our current situation. And we know how hard it is for young people to get their voices heard or published.

That's why we'd like to hear from you and share your voice with our audience which cares about these issues as much as you do.

So pitch us. Send us your thoughts. Let us know what you'd like to talk about, what's on your mind lately. Share this with a friend or family member who might be interested. Or send them this link!

Here's what we're looking for:

If we're interested in your idea, here's what we'll need:

Here are the details:

Guest submissions will be published every Wednesday. Writers should submit pitches to contact@spectacles.news by Saturday afternoon PST. Pitches should be 3-5 sentences in length, with a clear thesis and context. The editors will respond by Saturday evening informing writers whether pitches have been accepted or not. For an accepted pitch, the editors will set up a time for a short (30 minutes or less) call on Sunday to discuss the piece. The writer will have all of Sunday and Monday to work on the piece. A near-final draft should be complete and shared with the editors by noon PST on Tuesday.

Lastly, don't stress. We're both young writers trying to make an impact too. We're right there with you. Every idea is worth trying out. If for whatever reason we don't think yours is a perfect fit, we want to work with you to hammer it out.

Send us your pitch!

Don't hesitate to join us in trying to create and share a new way of seeing politics that puts democracy first.
