In The Fray Magazine | Call for Submissions | December 2011: The
Kindness of Strangers
Recently in China, bystanders walked by after a toddler was struck by
two vans -- whose drivers then drove away. Her death caused
international soul-searching over the callousness and inhumanity of
modern society. In The Fray wants to approach this topic through a
more optimistic lens: the kindness of strangers. Tell us about those
who have touched other people and made a difference -- even if in
passing. Describe your encounters with good Samaritans as you were
traveling, going through an ordeal, or just living everyday life.
Share with us the kinds of stories that can turn a cynic's heart.
We are currently accepting pitches for articles that relate to this
theme or more generally to the magazine’s mission of understanding
other people and encouraging empathy and tolerance. We are looking for
profiles, interviews, reportage, personal essays, op-eds, travel
writing, photo essays, artwork, videos, multimedia projects, and
review essays of books, film, music, and art. If interested, please
email firstname.lastname@example.org with a well-developed, one-paragraph
pitch for your proposed piece as soon as possible -- along with up to
three links to your previous work -- NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 14, 2011.
All contributors are urged to review our submissions guidelines at
As usual, we are open to submissions on other topics as well. Please

We are also looking for writers, photographers, and artists who can

We look forward to hearing from you.
