Panorama Submission Guidelines
We are always looking for fresh and engaging pieces of writing from TIG members, whether they are fiction or non-fiction. We are looking for uniqueness of vision and clarity of thought. We are looking for a wide variety of informative and insightful voices and perspectives to enrich our community. Please read the current issue of Panorama to see examples of what we are about!
Due to the popularity of Panorama among members, we are currently receiving more articles than we can edit and process. Please allow two to four weeks for a response from us regarding any new article you submit. If you have any questions about the status of your article which you have submitted more than 5 weeks ago, please email us at [email protected] Otherwise, thank you for your writing and especially your patience.
The following are the terms of a legally binding grant of rights from you to TakingITGlobal. Please read them carefully before submitting your work.
- We publish the following types of writing:
- Opinion: Voice your thoughts about current events and pressing global issues. Share your unique perspective through an opinion piece!
- Interview: Who inspires you? Conduct an interview with someone who has done something that you think would inspire other TIG members as well!
- Short Story: Visit the land of make-believe. Step in the lives of imaginary characters. Free your creative powers!
- Poetry: For those who are in love with words. Where words are pushed to their breaking point and are transformed into pure emotion.
- Minimum Word Requirements: For opinions and reviews: 500 words, to a maximum of 2,500 words. For example, a 17 page research report is not acceptable. If you are planning to write a longer piece, please contact the editorial staff with your idea! There are no word limits for creative writing pieces such as short stories and poetry.
