Bustle is looking for both originally reported stories and personal essays pegged to politics and current events. We welcome both domestic and international-focused topics. 

In your pitch, please provide a sentence or two of background on the topic and, most importantly, a clear angle. 

For originally reported pieces, please list which experts, groups, and or/people you plan to interview. For essays, we prefer to see a full draft for consideration. 
Completed pieces are preferred over pitches whenever possible.

**Please note: we are not looking for lifestyle pieces in this category (no food, travel, mental health, personal essays, sex, etc.)***
