    Future Left is on the look out for new contributors and new ideas. We are a small policy startup dedicated to all things future--from climate change to artificial intelligence.

    What you'll get out of this: This is a great opportunity for aspiring writers to hone their craft by writing about social, political, and economic issues and working with published professionals who are well-versed in professional publishing. We'll promote your work vigorously across social media and feature your work on our weekly podcast which you will be invited to participate in.

    What kind of articles are we interested in? We're interested in pieces between 800-1200 words that falls within our guidelines. The overarching point of inquiry: what are the long-term trends and challenges that are currently being ignored or approached incorrectly? Don't be put off by the "Left" in Future Left--we're all progressives here, but we're open minded and will consider any outside the box idea! Our main thematic areas are:

    Disruptive Technology (Labor Automation, Big Data, Sharing Economy, etc)
    Sustainability & Environment (Climate Change, Renewables, Sustainable Cities, etc.)
    Labor, Trade, & Economy (Fair Trade Practices, Wealth Inequality, Labor Unions, etc.)
    Global Conflict & Development (Sustainable Development, Conflict Resolution; etc.)
    American Communities (Governance Reform, Social Inclusivity, US domestic politics, etc.)

    You can learn more about how we approach these ideas here.

    Send a pitch or submission to We'll get back to you as soon as possible about whether we are interested in your article. Please note that Future Left is only interested in materials that have not already been published elsewhere. Be sure to include a breif bio about yourself!
