& Of Other Things are actively seeking contributors to help us make this a vibrant, interest filled publication. Our interests are wide, however we’re not a ‘what’s on’ guide and we don’t cover politics, sport or travel. As well as Hanoi based contributors we’re interested in hearing from people further afield, both in and outside of Vietnam – everything within & Of Other Things should be of potential interest to someone living in Hanoi but this includes the cultural and art scene within the wider Southeast and East Asia region.

& Of Other Things is produced for many reasons and motivations; love, satisfaction, interest, fun. Unfortunately not currently for money. We do think that financially rewarding talent and time is important and hope to be able to pay contributors (and ourselves) at some point in the future. In the meantime, if you’re interested in being involved we’ll do our best to get regular Hanoi contributors together for meet ups and food.

Should we be writing about you?
You might be a talented artist, musician, scientist, playwright, or perhaps you’re involved in a project or putting on an event you think people need to know about – tell us about it.

We welcome well researched features, opinion pieces, interviews and reviews. There’s room for lots of different styles of writing, as well as for other mediums such as podcast and video. We’re very interested to hear from people with in-depth knowledge and interest in a particular area. Send a pitch of your idea to us – an outline of the proposed article including people you might speak to, plus some example of your writing style – an example paragraph is sufficient if you don’t have previously written pieces.  We’re also open to contributors interested in carrying out research and writing about topics assigned to them.

Photographers, illustrators, artists, designers
Illustrators, artists, designers – we’re always looking for distinctive and exciting work that can be used to accompany pieces and for people willing to work on commissions.

Photographers needed to go on assignments with our writers. Or perhaps you have an idea for a story but need pairing with a writer to help tell it? Get in touch, including a link to, or examples of your work.

Translators and editors
We need translators for both English to Vietnamese and Vietnamese to English, as well as native speaker editors for each language. Please contact us detailing your experience.
