Submitting to RaceBaitR:
RaceBaitR is a community of people genuinely interested in exploring race, racism and intersectionality, and their relationship to those subjects.
If you would like to join this community as a contributor, we welcome submissions addressing these topics.
RaceBaitR reserves the right to publish submitted pieces at our own discretion. We look for pieces that will build upon what has already been created, not repeat, and that construct rather than simply deconstruct. Though the experience of marginalization is often painful, RaceBaitR is also here to provide a space to showcase the joy and culture of marginalized identities. Our audience is committed to learning with us, so pieces should not be directed at non-marginalized people who haven’t yet dedicated themselves to joining the fight for justice.
All pieces submitted to RaceBaitR will be edited with the goal of making it the best possible. Contributors should be open to working with editors and making changes when necessary.
Pieces should be original and can not be re-published elsewhere before 1 year without the express written consent of RaceBaitR.
You represent and warrant that you have all rights to grant to us and that no other rights from any third party will be necessary.
For original pieces published after November 10th, 2015, contributors will be compensated $15.
For interviews (excluding articles quoting or showcasing an artists work – which qualify as an original piece and for which payment will be made to the writer) both the interviewer and interviewee will be compensated $10 a piece.
Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the following:
- A 1 paragraph pitch of the piece.
- A 1 to 2 sentence bio.
- A high resolution jpeg of yourself (preferably in black and white).
