The Gulf Affairs Magazine is currently accepting submissions on a rolling basis. We are predominantly looking for articles, but will also consider literature reviews, article pitches, photo series, and in-depth interviews. All submissions should be sent as Word documents to with your name and a short bio attached.

Notes on Submissions:

  • Successful articles will be those that are between 800-1400 words, involve original analyses and research, and are focused on the MENA region.
  • Please avoid using specific terminology or anecdotes without providing some background. While many of our readers live in the MENA region, others do not.
  • Do not send us anything without first reading some of the articles we have already published – they are they best examples of what we are looking for.
  • Please keep citations to a limit and include them as hyperlinks within the article.
  • We do not offer financial compensation for articles at this time.
  • Finally, we assume that all submissions sent to us are exclusive and have not been previously published elsewhere. Please inform us if this is not the case.
