NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS. Love Notes from the Indignant Left is looking for talented journalists with a passion for social justice. We want to take readers into the intimate lives and struggles of marginalized individuals and groups--the mentally ill, the homeless, the elderly, the working poor, the undocumented, et al. Use your talents to bring the stories of these individuals and their struggles for economic and social justice to life using the techniques of creative non-fiction. We are also interested in stories about the social movements working to improve the living conditions of America's most vulnerable populations.  

Here is a sample article:

Submissions should be relatively short (750-1000 words). The language should be accessible, but the intellectual underpinnings of the content should appeal to a diverse audience.  

Include 1-5 high quality photos if possible. You should own the rights to these photographs. 

All submissions will be reviewed and receive brief feedback. You will be notified via email if your piece is selected for publication. Editors reserve the right to revise copy as needed and may contact you to complete necessary revisions.

It is free to submit, and as the site grows, writers will be paid for a fee for their content. Currently, however, all work is pro-bono.

If you have any questions before you submit, contact:
