Write for Us


Our analysis section introduces two new themes each month, one domestic and one international. An article for each theme will be published each week of the month. Articles can cover different facets of the theme, such as historical, diplomatic, cultural, economic, environmental, and scientific. Articles can also range from expository to analytical to forward-looking.

Our features section calls for creative, hands-on journalism. Proposals will be available until they are claimed.

November 2018 Themes

This month, our domestic theme is “A Technological China.” Our international theme is “Through the Looking Glass – China’s International Image.”
