We are looking for


We are excited and grateful to collaborate with you on projects, initiatives, actions, speaking events, publications, exhibitions, and beyond. Please get in touch below to start a conversation with our members. 

We welcome one-time requests to republish and/or translate our work, as well as inquiries about content sharing partnerships. Please get in touch below before republishing and/or translating, attribute the text to its original author(s), and provide a link to the original article.

Volunteer translators

We are looking for translators and contributing editors of translation who are interested in amplifying critical left perspectives across multiple language contexts and making Lausan’s editorial and organizing work available beyond Anglophone media. Volunteers will translate a wide range of writing, working closely with fellow translators and editors to produce carefully contextualized translations from a “writerly” perspective. 

Please briefly describe your background, translation and/or editorial experience (if any), and indicate which languages you can translate between, your capacity to contribute to translation on a monthly basis, and whether you would be interested in contributing to research on and outreach to leftist media platforms in the language you are working in. Include a sample of your translation work.

Volunteer designers, illustrators, and photographers

We are looking for visual storytellers who are interested in contributing to our editorial production, organizing projects, and day-to-day social media content. Volunteers will work closely with our design and editorial leads in creating feature images, illustrations, promotional graphics, and other types of digital content.

Please briefly describe your background and experience, and if possible, attach a portfolio website that contains samples of your current and previous work.

Pitches and submissions

We are accepting pitches and submissions for original and translated writing. Pitches can take Hong Kong as a starting point of analysis, or can focus on other relevant sites for the analysis of US and/or Asian imperialisms. For original work, please submit a two paragraph pitch highlighting your argument and what type of intervention you aim to make.

We receive a high volume of messages. As we are a 100% volunteer-run collective, we may not be able to respond right away.
