Submission Guidelines

"Stories that you want to hear, Ideas that matter and all the News that's fit to watch."

We started out as a non-for-profit literary initiative to promote the pen over a gun and we would still like to unequivocally maintain that stand. Your identity never influences a response to your submission rest assured. 

We would especially and specifically encourage young writers from humble backgrounds to get involved, our founding motto has always been in providing opportunities to resource-deprived but bright, potential individuals. We would like to use this platform to vitalize education and its importance.

This an open and uncensored space for your authentic and organic thoughts and feelings- so be creative, dive into bowels of emotion, and be read! 

Any writing which strives to draw a  societal impact is especially welcomed.

Authors' Rights


The author owns the rights to content they submit and publish. You can resubmit your work elsewhere after it has been published in our magazine provided that you mention this publication. We ask for First Electronic Rights; we do not publish previously published works. By submitting your work to The Globalist, you do give us the nonexclusive rights to publish it on the online magazine and archive it indefinitely, including anything reasonably related to publishing it (like storing, displaying, and reformatting it). We may use your writing to promote the magazine, such as posting highlights on our Instagram, but never for monetary purposes. We will never sell your content to third parties.
