  • For original reporting, we suggest first pitching ideas to the editor.
  • Please submit your articles as Word documents.
  • Please note that we are a non-profit newspaper. Therefore, we encourage voluntary contributions.

Ideas for Photo Essays:

  • “Share Your Story”

Submit pictures and stories of those who are working for change at the community level.

“Made in Balochistan”

Submit pictures and stories of innovation, crafts and art.

  • “How Government Works”

Submit pictures of classroom exercises, projects and field trips that encourage civic education and understanding of government system.

  • “Did You Know?”

Share pictures and progressive stories originating from other provinces that the people of Balochistan could replicate (e.g., The History Project/Beyond the Classroom, the T2F in Karachi, etc.).

Ideas for Features:

  • Report on specific efforts to mobilize powerful people and communities.
  • Report on collaborative efforts to maneuver through the congestion and blockages on the political landscape that prevent measures from being taken that would finance education and development projects.
  • Track progress on needed legislation
  • Seek the support of powerful people to solve certain issues.
  • Track the money (from authorization to actual project implementation).
  • Report on the impact of these changes on people’s lives.
