Pitch an original article for the site.

We love to host content from new and emerging millennial voices on pop culture, LGBTQIA+ issues, politics, feminism, and many other topics. Pitches should include how the piece aligns with BYP’s mission and voice, and should be sent to info@blackyouthproject.com along with the following:

  1. A 1 paragraph summary of the piece
  2. An estimated word count (accepted editorial pieces are generally between 800-1,200 words)
  3. A 1 to 2 sentence bio
  4. Relevant links to previous works

We also accept republished content.

If interested in republishing content you have already written, you should follow a traditional pitching approach and write a brief summary to help us understand how your content aligns with BYP’s voice and mission. Your submission should include a link to the content on a platform you own (or have authority to grant reposting permission for). You should include the same 4 additional pieces of information requested for pitching original content.

All submissions should be sent to info@blackyouthproject.com.
