Thank you for your interest in contributing to TNT- The Northeast Today.
WHO WE ARE?
TNT- The Northeast Today is an independent news organization that is dedicated to covering the current affairs, news, culture and events in the Northeast India. We want to help you to see news events as starting points for constructive conversations.
WHAT IS READER’S FORUM?
The Readers Forum is looking for upbeat, personal essays/stories from 500 to 1000 words. These are first-person, non-fiction explorations of how you responded to a place, a person, a situation, an event, or happenings in everyday life. Tell a story; share a funny true tale. The humor should be gentle. We accept essays on a wide variety of subjects, and encourage timely, newsy. All material must be original and previously unpublished. We are always looking for essays on travel, parenting (your experiences with children as opposed to advice for someone else), home, family, gardening, neighborhood, and community.
Short poems: We are particularly interested in poetry that has an international flavor or that offers some global or cultural insights. Short poems are more likely to be accepted (because of space constraints) than poems that are more than 18 lines long.
Photos: We welcome high quality images to accompany your material. Please submit them as separate image files (e.g. jpg), and at a high resolution (300dpi). If you have several large image files to submit, please consider using Drop box or a big file website e.g. Wetransfer.com. Please ensure that you have permission from the rights holders for TNT to reproduce the photos.
Videos: We welcome high quality videos from those who are interested in producing/directing videos for TNT-the Northeast Today.
Folk stories: Folk stories, myths relating to times immemorial form an integral part of the culture of Northeast India. And we at TNT believe in the importance of being connected to our roots, no matter what. If you have a folk story pertaining to your region (8 states of Northeast India) and you think it should be brought out, then TNT’s ‘Reader’s Forum’ is the place for you!
Send us your poems/stories contributions for Reader’s Forum at firstname.lastname@example.org and photos/videos at email@example.com with a subject ‘Reader’s Forum’ in the mail and we will revert back to you.
