Ensia Edge Story Proposal Guidelines

Edge is the multimedia storytelling platform of Ensia,  an independent, nonprofit magazine presenting new perspectives on environmental challenges and solutions to a global audience.

Generally, proposals for Edge stories should follow the guidelines for other story proposals. Please consider, however, that Edge stories must have strong visual content and a reason for telling the story using visuals, and will likely be longer than conventional Ensia feature stories (likely upward of 2,000 words).

If you believe you have a story you think would be a good fit for Edge, send your pitch to In addition to clearly describing the piece you envision writing and how it will be innovative, please include an explanation as to why this story should be featured on Edge, including any visual ideas you may have and/or photos, videos, data graphics, infographics, maps, etc., you propose to accompany the piece, and why the story will be best told using them. Please also include payment expectations for any visual assets you propose to provide.

We try to respond to every query within a month, usually sooner.
