How to Pitch The Daring
Thanks so much for your interest, we look forward to reading and seeing your work. The Daring publishes pieces from freelance contributors and is always looking to commission new writers, storytellers, and artists. Our stories are organized around four categories: Art, Music, Poetry, and Opinion. This includes photography, illustration, drawing, painting, mixed media, multimedia, and video.
Our stories focus on but are not limited to the intersection between art and life, deepening craft, and mental health. Our guiding principle is a curiosity about how the literary and visual arts relate to the human experience. A strong piece for us has an element of the personal and also raises questions or addresses issues that are more universal.
We’re thrilled to get to know your work! When submitting, please keep your pitch to one to two short paragraphs, no more than 500 words. Include in your pitch your idea, methodology, and your sense of why now. Please, no artspeak or academic papers. We are looking to foster human connection with each piece.
We look forward to receiving your pitches! Below, please find the main topics we are interested in expanding upon at this time.
