Guest Posting

How do I pitch a single post or sympopsia?

Your best bet is to email our general address and cc one of the editors.

What should a pitch look like?

• Tell us who you are.
• Give us a brief description (approximately a paragraph or less, as appropriate) of what the post or symposia is about.
• Let us know your timeframe, with reference to the state of the piece (such as whether it’s notional or already written).

What about for a symposium?

The main difference is that we need to know if you’d like to participate and whether you’ve already got them lined up or not.

What about for a Q&A Piece

These are just like standard pitches, but should be shorter.

Do you solicit pieces?

Yes.

What file format should I use?

For most purposes, the best bet is to send us a Word or .rtf document.

Should I embed links?

 Yes.The target should be unspecified or “_blank.” If you don’t know what that means, then you’ll be fine.

How many spaces after a period?

One

Serial comma?

Yes.

American-style quotations?

Yes.

Em dashes for punctuation?

We’re fans of the em dash. If you use an en dash instead, be sure to insert a space between it and each adjacent word.
