MESA Magazine is a digital platform dedicated to celebrating culture, sex, fashion, and politics in Middle Eastern and South Asian (MESA) communities, for all to explore. Our philosophy is that Middle Eastern and South Asian writers should be able to write about more than just race and cultural identity, despite the fact that this is what editors mostly commission us for.
We’re very excited about challenging this concept and we hope you are too. Why? Because it’s time we finally have a platform to voice our thoughts, whether on style, comedy, books or your mum’s best curry.
If you want to get involved as a volunteer writer, please check out our MESA house style and guidelines and send us an email.
MESA media kit can be found here.
