Launched in Spring 2020, Pioneer Works Broadcast is a virtual and annual print magazine that encourages radical thinking across the arts, sciences, music, and technology. Broadcast reflects the spirit of Pioneer Works and extends beyond the space’s physical walls in Brooklyn through narrative-driven journalism, essays, criticism, ruminations, video, audio, and much more.

We believe in cross-pollination, experimentation, impassioned arguments, unexpected angles, and evocative writing. We operate under the principle that de-siloing the disciplines and championing a spectrum of voices contributes to a diverse culture that benefits us all.


Pioneer Works Broadcast welcomes submissions across the arts, sciences, music, and technology. We’re partial to strong analyses and voice-driven narratives. Please send a concise pitch—300 words max—along with two writing samples—published or unpublished, as links or attachments—to broadcast@pioneerworks.org. In the pitch, please be sure to include: why this, why now, and why us?

All contributors will be paid for their work. Please note that while we appreciate every submission, we operate as a small team and may not be able to respond to each of them.
