Timid is an independent lifestyle magazine exploring the honest stories and beauty of the Asian community.
We, as humans, undergo various changes in our lives; from physical changes to more subtle esoteric changes to revolutionary changes that impact the communities around us. It is through these changes that we can reflect, evolve, and embrace ourselves. For Timid’s second issue, “Metamorphosis”, we are exploring the transformations – the good, the bad, the in-betweens – of what shapes our stories. We are calling for people to share their experiences, art, and expressions of metamorphosing into something different or new.
We have a voice to share and this is what Timid is set out to do— a platform to celebrate, support, and spread awareness about Asian individuals, communities, and small businesses. We welcome non-fiction submissions in the following formats:
We are currently accepting the following categories: Media, Food, Culture, Style, and Design

We will review submissions based on relevance to the theme and content type needed. Due to the small size of our editorial team and the amount of ideas we receive each week, we will try our best to respond to all submissions.
