So, you're interested in submitting an article for Biji-Biji Initiative?

Just follow these simple guidelines and we'll get back to you!

Topics & Audience

As Biji-biji Initiative is a social enterprise about sustainability, the circular economy, and social innovation, we prefer to add value for our audience with topics closely related to the three main ideas mentioned.

We are always open to new ideas and fresh takes, though!

Our target audience is a diverse group of people with varying backgrounds and experiences primarily interested in sustainability, waste management issues, community empowerment and social entrepreneurship. Be sure to keep this in mind when crafting your content.

Please note that we only consider completed drafts, not pitches.

  • It is of utmost importance that your content is original (not plagiarized) and uses proper citations for works referenced.
  • When quoting others’ work, please include attributions in the body text that mentions the author/organisation and publication along with a link back to the original post. We do not accept footnotes, endnotes or reference lists.
  • In structuring your article, please use headers, bullet points (where applicable) and ensure that long paragraphs are broken up adequately.
  • Please aim for an article of 900-1,500 words.
  • Please ensure that your content is educational, informational, or entertaining – not promotional.
  • We encourage embedding all forms of multimedia in your article – pictures, videos, infographics, etc. To ensure the quality of these materials, please provide a Google Drive link to a folder containing all relevant materials. Keep in mind to ensure that you have copyright permission to use any of the stock photos, audio or music embedded in your article.

 

Note that the editorial team at Biji-biji reserves the right to edit your article for grammar, spelling, style, and SEO while doing our absolute best to retain the tone and personality of the piece.

The headline and subheadings may be rewritten in compliance with SEO best practices.
