While the majority of our stories are conducted internally by our team, we welcome unsolicited pitches for essays. Please familiarize yourself with our areas of interest and approaches to previous stories before sending us your pitch. We are always open to nuanced opinions on the subjects we cover.

You may submit a completed work, but short abstracts are preferred. Your article should be under 2,000 words and contain links to sources, not footnotes.

Your email must include (1) “Submissions” as the subject line, (2) a short pitch, (3) a brief bio, (4) links to previous work if possible.

Please do not submit multiple pitches. If we are interested in your essay and think it’s a good fit, we’ll get back to you. We do our best to respond to everyone. At times, due to the volume of email we receive, we may only be able to respond to submissions we’re interested in publishing.

Please email your submission here.
