In The Fray Magazine | Call for Submissions | October 2011: Rebirth
The most powerful stories that humanity tells itself are those of rebirth and redemption, transformation and transcendence — from ancient narratives of reincarnated deities and purifying deluges to modern-day fables of triumphant underdogs and rags-to-riches success. To celebrate a rejuvenation of our own — the launch of our revamped site in December — In The Fray magazine would like to explore stories of rebirth. Send us your tales of people who have started over. Tell us stories of redemption in the face of long odds. We’re looking for pieces that demonstrate the transformative power of a new beginning. Think broadly about the topic and get creative.

We are currently accepting pitches for articles that relate to this theme or more generally to the magazine’s mission of understanding other people and encouraging empathy and tolerance. We are looking for profiles, interviews, reportage, personal essays, op-eds, travel writing, photo essays, artwork, videos, multimedia projects, and review essays of books, film, music, and art. If interested, please email with a well-developed, one-paragraph pitch for your proposed piece as soon as possible, and NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 7, 2011. All contributors are urged to review our revised submissions guidelines at

As usual, we are open to submissions on other topics as well. Please see the instructions at for instructions on how to send us a query.

We are also looking for writers, photographers, and artists who can take care of specific assignments, including interviews, book and film reviews, and accompanying photos and artwork. If interested, please follow the instructions at the bottom of to join our contributors mailing list.

We look forward to hearing from you.
