Call for Submission
Seeking stories on African cuisine
Matador Network is looking for writers to submit story pitches on African cuisine, from every corner of the continent, both traditional and contemporary styles. We want to hear about everything, from the most interesting and innovative restaurants, chefs, and anyone else changing the food landscape in Africa, to the traditional dishes that form the foundation of the region’s cuisine. Stories will range from 800 – 1000 word reported and researched stories, not personal essays. Writers from Africa, or those who have lived there for an extended period of time, will be favored.
Send pitches to Elisabeth Sherman at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line of your email, write AFRICAN FOOD PITCH, and include your familiarity with the country and your previous food writing in the body of your email. Rates begin at $60.
