WRITE FOR US

One of the main things we strive to do at Pardesi is open up conversations around traditionally difficult conversations. From experiences of racism and misogyny to colorism, your relationship with your hair to food, we encourage our community to explore your identity through content creation and share it with us.

As a South Asian woman it is easy to feel isolated and disconnected. By sharing your experiences and thoughts in the safe space that we have created at Pardesi, you can connect to other women from around the world who are feeling similar things to you.

Creating content for us is easy - we don't require any prior experience, and will work with you to shape and form your ideas if necessary.

WHAT CAN I WRITE ABOUT?

We encourage all of our content creators to explore their identity in the topics they write about, and we also encourage a wide variety of form!

 

You can send in a long form personal essay about your experiences, a listicle of your favourite books by South Asian authors, a podcast review, a movie review, a lifestyle piece, a fashion piece - absolutely anything that fits in with our ethos of amplifying, empowering and celebrating South Asian women worldwide.

WHAT CAN'T I WRITE ABOUT?

Even though our mere existence in this world as a South Asian woman is an act of political resistance, at Pardesi we do not discuss geopolitical or party political issues.

We firmly believe that providing an escape from the trauma of politics, and instead focus on building a nurturing and safe space for South Asian women around the world.

There are many other platforms and spaces that are better suited for political pieces.
