Show Off Your Brain Power at Pacific Standard

As a glossy dedicated to “academia, research and primary source investigation,” Pacific Standard wants fresh FOB stories that will make its readers think outside the box.

“We’d love to look at the work coming from the most innovative thinkers, those doing on-the-ground research, and how their findings will turn conventional wisdom on its head,” said editor Maria Streshinsky. Stories should be well-researched yet concise, as most freelance articles average around 1,200 words.
