Submissions Guideline

Thank you for your interests in contributing to us.

We produce, edit, and publish digital content that provides critical narratives, analysis; builds on well-grounded arguments and facts; reflects the lived experiences of students from different contexts. Critical Edges’ perspectives are international, meaning that the range of topics has a global scope, and the intended audience is in particular, but not limiting to, the student community across the globe. You can find our topics relating to key currents in education and global phenomenon that influence students and the wider societies.

Every quarter we produce a thematic Focus. Additionally our content fall into four categories: Education, Culture, Politics, and Society. In 2021, we are re-organizing our categories you can expect an update from us.

We aim to create open spaces for fresh, reflective, and underrepresented critical voices from students, reflecting different worldviews and traditions of knowledges. We do not aim to publish technical, jargon ridden, and unoriginal work that reproduces dominant discourses.

You can submit with a wide range of genres including: articles, opinions, essays, analysis, journalistic work, book/movie reviews, stories, poetry, artworks, photography, illustrations, podcasts, and etc. So you can choose the best format to materialize your ideas.
