Our Process
Once your pitch has been accepted, you will be paired with a story producer, who collaborates with you in telling your story. Each piece is also assigned an artist who works to visually bring the story to life.
The use of a pseudonym is granted on a case-by-case basis, but primarily used to protect those who face significant risk.
We offer payments for work rendered. It's small, but important for us to acknowledge the gifts and expertise our contributors share with us. We've been doing it ever since we began in 2009.
