Write For Us
Chileno publishes articles from a range of people from those just starting out in their careers to seasoned journalists and experts in their respective fields. We also publish interview pieces with noteable Chileans from music legends to scientific experts. Submissions are encouraged from all individuals and groups and all parts of the political spectrum. We also encourage submissions from postgraduate students from all countries. Original content is strongly preferred but on rare occassion we accept articles that have been published elsewhere. These cases are usually when the original publication was in Spanish and a translation into English has been made.
IMPORTANT: while guest posting is welcome, we only accept articles from individuals or groups with a genuine and demonstrble interest in some aspect of Chile/Latin America. That is, we do not accept SEO style guest blogging from groups with ostensibly little or no connection to our subject matter.
We accept articles for consideration for publication in Chileno in both English and Spanish. The ideal situation is where the article is written in one of these languages and submitted along with a translation into the other. While we encourage authors to carry out the translations themselves we realise that this is not always possible. In such circumstances it is perfectly acceptable to submit articles in either language. It may also be possible for Chileno staff to aid in the translation of articles from Spanish to English or vice versa.
Article length is typically between 800 and 1200 words and should be a minimum of 500 words. Longer articles may be accepted at the discretion of the Editor.
