Submissions

Write to us!

We invite, solicit, and desire a variety of submissions: field notes, ethnographic essays, methodological reflections, fieldwork dilemmas, visual essays, and even ethnographic fiction, poetry, comics and illustrations

A tangential field note that you do not know what to do with but are still attached to? Send it to us!

A bunch of photographs that tell us a story? Thought you’d never ask.

An entry from your journal from the day you had the most fun during fieldwork? Absolutely, yes!

A painful encounter in the field that you want to recount as catharsis? Consider this the right home for it. 

Some fieldwork non-fiction with which you have been considering flexing your essay writing skills? We would love it.

Please pitch your idea to us at ethnomargin@gmail.com. We promise to get back to you within a week.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • For longform ethnographic essays, we request authors stay under 3000 words, excluding references and footnotes.
  • For methodological reflections, we request authors stay under 2500 words, excluding references and footnotes.
  • For photo essays, we ask for no more than 12 photos and a maximum of 1000 words of accompanying texts.
  • Podcasts are currently by invitation only; for all other submissions, do pitch to us.
  • We are currently unable to pay our contributors. Hopefully, in the near future, we will be able to!

P.S.: We encourage bilingual submissions.

P.P.S.: We are open to pitches from ethnographers in any discipline, even though this website is being managed by two sociologists.
