Submission Process

Step 1. Send your #Taiwander story to with your name, title of your piece, and ARTICLE SUBMISSION in the subject heading. We will do our best to respond but cannot promise we will be able to get back to everyone.

To let us learn more about you, we strongly recommend you to hashtag #Taiwander #CWmagazine at your public posts on any social media.

Step 2. Selected submission(s) will be featured on our Reflexive Taiwan Series.

【Reflexive Taiwan Series】
In Taiwan, some see a limit in the market, a lack of global thinking, and a lag in the pulse of the world. Some see a small island of people perching besides a large nation, huddling in their own comfort, blunting their wolf spirit. Some even see Taiwan as a ghost island, a jump board for those who leave, but a jail for those who can’t. Yet we also see many visitors in Taiwan, reminding us that Taiwan is good, genuinely good. Through a series of report, from a self-reflective perspective, we would see, would believe, and would achieve the richness and virtue of Taiwan.

Reflexive Taiwan Series example articles:

♦ Mark Stocker: Taiwan: A Nation 'Half Empty' or 'Half Full'?
♦ Jenna Lynn Cody: Traveling in Taiwan as A Woman (But Not Only)
♦ Samuel Galler: Even In the Hardest Time, Engage and Listen

Step 3. On June 29, 1-3 best submissions will be selected by the editorial team. The winner(s) will be offered a MyTaiwanTour e-voucher (value USD$105).
