Editorial Process

Our process from pitch to post has a number of steps and usually takes about a month, although we can fast-track pieces that are linked to current events.

If you are interested in contributing to Baraza, the first step is to submit a pitch. We’ll review it at our weekly editorial meeting. If it seems right for Baraza, we will send you our comments and assign you an editor.  You and your editor will agree on a deadline for submitting a first draft (between 800 and 1,000 words). Once you and your editor are satisfied with the draft,  our editorial committee will workshop it and send a final round of edits for your approval before posting.
