Five Minutes to Midnight is an organization devoted to promoting human rights and international issues among the world's youth. Originally started as a way for young people to share their views about the War in Iraq, it has grown to include all topics within the field of human rights.
Specifically, our mission is "To give youth a voice and media outlet that will allow them to become aware and get involved in political and international issues."
Initially, we worked to achieve this goal through the publication of a monthly issue, where youth shared their views and ideas about current affairs. While this is still our biggest project, our growth has allowed us to work on a number of different projects, including a workshop on media, human rights, and psychology, and a wide range of other independent projects.
Five Minutes to Midnight's main focus is promoting human rights and international issues through the written word. By writing such articles and publishing them around the world, we spread information and promote awareness on the issues the youth care about.
Articles are usually published in monthly issues, though we do publish in other periodicals, as well as our own books. If you are interested in writing articles, there are two types you can submit.
1000 word, fully sourced articles on issues pertinent to national governments or the international community. Articles can be on anything from corporations to war. Articles should be submitted on the 15th of every month to be considered for the upcoming issue.
If you are interested in writing but do not know what topics to explore, we can help you find something to write about.
Comments are informal opinion pieces on events happening in the world today. They should have sources, but the guidelines regarding them are much more lenient. The recommended length for a comment is 500 words.
If you are interested in submitting either type of writing, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
