Elite Daily's Politics section is looking for personal essays related to ongoing news stories and original reported pieces. These can be a way a law affects you, an underreported story in your community, or anything in between. 

We are not seeking straightforward pieces on national news. We do not accept publicity pitches or guest posts through Submittable.

Please read Elite Daily's news coverage to get a feel for the content and voice of the section, and please search to make sure we haven't covered the topic before. If you have previous writing experience, please include links to your work. Your pitch should be well-developed and full drafts will be requested before a pitch is accepted.
