Story Proposals

Ensia welcomes proposals from experienced journalists and communicators for feature stories and articles that provide ideas, information and inspiration people around the world can use to shape sustainable solutions to complex challenges. For more information, please download the Ensia Submission Guidelines (PDF).  

Voices Submissions

Individuals with compelling perspectives are welcome to submit opinion pieces for consideration for our Voices section. For more information, please download the Voices Submission Guidelines (PDF).

Edge Submissions

Edge is the multimedia storytelling platform of Ensia. Generally, proposals for Edge stories should follow the guidelines for other story proposals. Please consider, however, that Edge stories must have strong visual content and a reason for telling the story using visuals, and will likely be longer than conventional Ensia feature stories (likely upward of 2,000 words).

If you believe you have a story you think would be a good fit for Edge, send your pitch to dldoody [at] In addition to clearly describing the piece you envision writing and how it will be innovative, please include an explanation as to why this story should be featured on Edge, including any visual ideas you may have and/or photos, videos, data graphics, infographics, maps, etc., you propose to accompany the piece, and why the story will be best told using them. Please also include payment expectations for any visual assets you propose to provide.

Multimedia Submissions

Experienced photographers, videographers and designers are welcome to submit proposals for photo galleries, multimedia content and infographics. For more information, please download the Multimedia Submission Guidelines (PDF).

Book Excerpts

Authors and publicists are welcome to submit proposals for book excerpts to be published in Ensia magazine. For more information, please download the Book Excerpts Guidelines (PDF).


We invite you to help us share solutions to the Earth’s biggest challenges by supporting Ensia. For more information on how you can get involved, please contact Ensia interim editor in chief David Doody.
