The Team

Brown Girl Magazine was created by and for South Asian womxn who believe in the power of storytelling as a vehicle for community building and empowerment. We have a team of more than 200 diverse content creators living in the USA, Canada and the United Kingdom with hundreds of guest contributors spanning the globe.

We are an open platform that welcomes all types of content — so your opinion is fair game. We never shy away from publishing content that may contradict one another. All you need is an authentic voice and a story to tell.

Once you join our team, you will be welcomed to the Brown Girl family with a respective managing editor who will help you hone your writing skills and build an online portfolio worth sharing with your family, friends, colleagues and employers.

Our contributors submit articles regularly (the number of monthly posts is decided between the writer and assigned editor). Contributors are responsible for writing SEO-friendly, multimedia stories, meeting deadlines, staying in tune with the assigned beat or topic, and sharing content on social media.

Due to an overwhelming influx of new contributors, we are not accepting new applicants until January 2021. In the meantime, we urge you to please submit a guest piece first if you’d like to see your work published sooner.
