HOW CAN I JOIN GATHER WITH MOONRISE?
Currently we host Gather events dependent on our capacity to host, however we are expanding our team so that you can look forward to more frequent gatherings! Stay tuned via our Facebook or Instagram for any updates.
Where are gather with Moonrise events located?
We are currently based in Perth and New York. If you would love us to host a Gather event in your city, we’d love for you to reach out to us and let us know!
WHO CAN CONTRIBUTE to our journal?
Any individual of Asian descent, caught at the cultural crossroads where east meets west. Regardless of where you are currently living; a small town, or big city, north or south of the equator, in a box… you are invited to contribute! No age limits, however, if you are under eighteen, please ensure that you have guardian consent when completing your contributor’s agreement.
I’M NOT THAT GREAT AT WRITING AND I’M NOT VERY INTERESTING, SO I’M NOT SURE IF I SHOULD CONTRIBUTE?
We exist to amplify your voice that you already have, regardless of your ability to write or string together words of eloquence. If words aren’t your forte, perhaps you’d like to submit a visual depiction or creative piece instead. The beauty of this collective is that it is your collective; we empower you; we wouldn’t exist without your stories and contributions. If that doesn’t inspire you to get those creative muscles going - feel free to take the readers seat! Perhaps you’ll shed a few tears of joy or momentary laughs from an overwhelming sense of belonging and understanding.
HOW CAN I BEST CONTRIBUTE TO MOONRISE’S SUCCESS?
Sharing! Share your story or ideas with us so we can share it with others. Share our website and what we’re doing with your grandparents, pets, rivals, or partner-in-crime.
DO YOU PAY FOR SUBMISSIONS OF WRITING AND OPINION?
There may be scope for paid submissions for Features in the future, however, at present, our contributors submit pieces on a voluntary basis without financial compensation. We're in the early stages of organically growing our platform and community, and the contributions we receive are primarily driven by the passion of the individual in the writing of it.
WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO INCLUDE A PHOTO FOR MY STORY?
No worries - we keep all our stories anonymous. You can exercise the option to not include a photo and let your words do the talking.
WHERE WILL MY STORY/FEATURE BE PUBLISHED?
Your Story/Feature will be published on our website, and excerpts possibly being featured on our social media channels. We are advocates of sharing the love!
