Like reading our stories? Want to feature yours?
Awesome – we’d love to hear your story. However, before we do, here’s a few things you should know.
1. If you don’t hear back from us in two weeks, it probably means you didn’t make it.
Writing’s a tough job. There’s never enough time to go through our current workload, let alone reply to all the submissions. We simply can’t afford to tell you your story didn’t make the cut.
If you don’t hear back from us, assume the worst. But don’t be discouraged – keep trying, and submit another (better) article.
2. Don’t submit the same article more than once.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re always looking for interesting stories. But no means no, and silence means no too.You can keep trying your luck, but rest assured our editorial team won’t entertain repeat submissions.
Oh and another thing – submitted articles must be in their final form. Do not submit drafts or incomplete articles.
3. Specify exactly how you’d like us to publish your article.
Be clear if you want to be anonymous, or if you want to be published under a pseudonym. Pseudonyms are fine, but they must be proper names too.
You are required to upload a minimum of 1 image to complement your story. If more than 1 images are uploaded, we will decide which to feature as the main featured image should wee publish your story.
We don’t publish articles by pussydestroyer96 (even if some of us would really like to). And you can’t change your name after the article goes live.
4. Write for an audience.
We’ve been editing for a while now, and the biggest problem we face is that most writers assume they’re interesting (they’re not).
Be a good storyteller. Share something entertaining, relatable, and informative. Write something which millions of random Malaysians would be interested to read.
To give you a better idea of what we want, here are some examples of other articles our writers have written.
