What is Cold Tea Collective looking for?
By writing for us, we hope you find fulfillment in telling stories in a space created for and by Asian millennials.

We want to leave our readers with something they can relate to, connect with, or feel inspired by on some level, whether you’re sharing a personal story, a listicle, commentary, or opinion. We’re looking for posts that:

  • Comment and provide meaningful insight into an aspect of the Asian experience in North America
  • Connect personal experiences and stories to a larger or deeper context
  • Help us better understand ourselves, the communities we participate in, and communities outside of our own
  • Empower and strengthen our ability to live our lives with confidence

We aim to cover a wide range of topics, so feel free to pitch ideas from any angle. As a writer, we will pair you with an editor that will guide you through the ideation and writing process.

We welcome pitches from all BIPOC communities, not just from Asian writers, and would love to hear your stories, particularly as they connect with our North American Asian millennial audience.

What’s NOT right for us: Rant or takedown pieces. Overly divisive opinions that break apart the Asian millennial community rather than connect them. Excessively self-promotional stories that only serve as marketing. Please note that we do NOT cover single releases or promote third-party fundraisers planned by individuals – thanks for your understanding.
