Ends on

The Nasiona is sponsoring The Blended Future Project's newest initiatives this summer. The Blended Future Project is looking for true, personal stories about your multiracial or multiethnic experience. They feature stories and perspectives on:

  • Embracing your own personal identity.
  • Overcoming a difficult experience about your personal identity.
  • Learning something new about a different culture or ethnicity.

By submitting, you will be considered for publication in Blended Future Project's platform and/or The Nasiona.

The Mission

The Blended Future Project is an online media company that examines race and culture through story. They seek to enhance our understanding to lay the groundwork for a more equitable and empathetic future. And by telling our stories, we can connect with each other on a deeper level. 

We especially encourage stories from folks who relate to one or more of these identities: Latina/e/o/x, BIPOC, being mixed-race, LGBTQIAA+, from an immigrant family or diaspora community, third culture children and/or adoptees, and/or those in an interracial or intercultural relationship. 

Tell us how your experiences have changed you and shaped your point of view.

Rules:

  • Work must be original. We accept unpublished or previously published work for this series.
  • Submit up to two stories.
  • Word count: between 750 and 1,200 words per story.
  • Ensure your piece is in .doc or .docx format. With your name either as the header/footer, or watermarked on the document.

The Nasiona is also sponsoring The Blended Future Project's newest initiative: Remixed Podcast. ReMixed Podcast looking for guests and interviewees.

Your Story

The Blended Future Project  would like to feature you as either an interviewee or guest for their first podcast episodes, which are about the state of interracial relationships in America, in honor of Loving Day. 

If you are in an interracial or intercultural relationship, they would like to speak with you about:

  • How you and your partner met.
  • Each of your thoughts about interracial relationships before and during your time together.
  • How you both have been treated as a couple, and any backlash that you and/or your partner have received by being together because of your different ethnicities.

We understand that these topics are extremely personal. These interviews and episodes will be handed with the utmost of respect for both you and your partner. 

If you wish to take part, please contact them at:
