3. Event profiles - what went down, where and how
4. Photography
5. Creative fiction, nonfiction and poetry.

What We Want?
We are not looking for ordinary writing. We are looking for content with exciting angles; not only about a WHO or WHAT but also with the interesting WHY and HOW?
We are looking for original writing which has not been published elsewhere.

How Do We Pay?
Payment for any submitted material is negotiated, and we pay after publishing. You can of course earn a lot more by assisting an upcoming artiste to present their story to us for publication.
