Did you almost die from drinking milk tea from Tondo? Write us a story that only you could write.


Have a fiery opinion on a topic you understand more than anyone else? Went through an event that others may never experience? Find a hidden place and have pictures to prove it? Share it with us and our audience.

What you need to know:

  1. Submit your piece via Google docs. Attach the link in the message and set it to “Anyone with the link can view this post.”
  2. The story should be at least 300 words long, minimum.
  3. All submitted articles are subject to editorial standards. You’ll be able to see them before publishing.
  4. You will be credited for your piece.
  5. We don’t have a budget for freelance pieces. (If you really want to get paid, you can apply as a part-time contributor, but you’ll be subject to strict screening.)
  6. Do not submit conflicts of interest. (Ex. If your story is a restaurant owned by your friend.) Read our ethics page for more information.
  7. Do not attempt to mask your sales pitch as an idea, our blacklist requests.
