Essay & Blog submission guidelines

Essays

Essays should be about 1200 words. It’s a good idea to get yours as close to that as you can rather than ask us to cut it.

We use APA format, with in-line citations, and end of essay references.

If your piece is selected for publication, you should hear from us within 5 – 7 business days. You will not be contacted if it has not been chosen.

There is no payment if your essay is published. We assume first-print rights and electronic rights for unsolicited submissions; writers retain copyright. All essays published by us are released under a Creative Commons license.

E-mail your essay to us. In the subject line, be sure to put “essay submission” and the topic (in 2 or 3 words). The topic is especially important to ensure it meets our mandate.

Please submit your essay in 2 forms – as an Open Document Text attachment, and a summary into the body of the e-mail.

Blog posts

Blog posts should be 600 – 800 words. References or citations are not required, but will be included if it is part of the submission.

If your piece is selected for publication, you should hear from us within 5 – 7 business days. You will not be contacted if it has not been chosen.
