Submitting Articles to Race-Talk

Race-Talk welcomes queries. A good Race-Talk article offers background and context to ongoing national and world issues, a challenge to the mainstream media perspective, or an important story that hasn’t been told elsewhere. Subject matter includes how race and gender affect politics, culture, the arts,  and social issues, with a focus on quality writing.

Before you submit anything to Race-Talk, be sure you are familiar with our approach. Pay particular attention to writing quality and content. Articles for Race-Talk should be written in language simple enough to be comprehensible to a high school student, with enough research and insight to be interesting to a PhD. Assume that you’re talking to knowledgeable readers; don’t be didactic. Avoid excessive identifiers for well-known figures or familiar debates. We encourage writers to grapple with big ideas, but they must be conveyed with wit and style, avoiding clichés, jargon, artspeak, journalese, and academese.

Submitting art and creative writing to the Culture Section

Race-Talk’s culture section covers artists and cultural issues overlooked by the mainstream press, whom of which discuss issues of race, ethnicity and equality through art and creative writing. The section provides readers with cultural inspiration and showcases the individuals who make culture happen. Writing is sharp, stylish and alive with wit. It should be interesting to art practitioners and enthusiasts, but accessible to the merely curious.

Subjects/topics covered include: independent and underground film, video, books, music, zines, websites, e-zines, dance, art, photography, performance art, theatre. Is it art? If you have to ask, it probably is. We like work that has a political edge, a cheeky sense of humor—or both.  If you have your artwork digitally we can create a digital art exhibit. Keep in mind that our audience is national and stories and issues covered in the section should be timely.
