Write for Us

Pitch an article!

NOVAsia aims to be a platform for student voices in the conversation on global affairs. We invite students or junior academics from all around the world to write for us.


  • Your article pitch should summarize your article (100 words), outlining the topic and your argument.
  • Article length: 800-1600 words, but this range is flexible
  • Our style is casual but informed. The language should be succinct and engaging, and make the article accessible to readers who do not have prior knowledge of the subject.
  • Reference online sources with embedded hyperlinks. Offline sources (books, interviews) can be referenced directly in the text.
  • We do not write or publish academic articles, so academic footnotes or bibliographies are not necessary.
  • We highly encourage contributors to conduct their own interviews in order to support their argument.
  • Include at least one photo (min 800×600). You must have the usage rights to the photo.


Email your pitch to our editor-in-chief at novasiamag[at]gmail[dot]com.
