Korea Exposé welcomes strong, opinionated and well-argued essays between 1,200 and 1,600 words about any topic that can shed light on issues in contemporary Korea. Submissions, however, must be consistent with Korea Exposé’s core values of being critical, independent and unbound. They must also be timely, drawing connections to current issues on the Korean Peninsula. But you don’t have to be an expert or journalist to write for us—everyone is welcome.

Before sending a full draft, please tell us in your own words the following about your pitch:

— What is your topic?

— In one or two sentences, please let us know the main idea you want to convey.

— In one or two sentences, please explain how your topic/idea is relevant at this point in time.

— When can you submit your draft?

We wish to read the full draft only after your pitch is approved. After we read the draft, we will share our feedback and ask you to make revisions in line with Korea Exposė’s style, if necessary.

Style: Korea Exposė welcomes expert insights, but please understand it is not a platform for sharing academic work. The writing must address a general audience. Please avoid jargons, scholarly references that are too specific, and neologisms better suited to communicating with scholars in the author’s field.

Please provide, to the best of your ability, sources to back up facts, events, and references you make. They should be online sources inserted into the draft as hyperlinks.

You can reach us at the following address: editor@koreaexpose.com. Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you.
