How To Submit

Please register to be able to submit pitches or finished articles. Once you’ve registered there, you can use the same Enliven platform to communicate with our editors, check the status of your submission, etc.

We may not be able to respond to your pitch immediately, but if we are able to accommodate extra content and your proposed article sounds like a good fit, we will try to do so within one week.

Unfortunately, we are not currently able to respond to every submission, but we always appreciate your effort and may follow up on individual pitches at a later date.

A note on editing: We may request rewrites before publishing your article. We will not make significant changes to an article’s content without permission, but please be aware that we may lightly edit your post for grammar, spelling, and general clarity, and/or change the title. We may also add in relevant links and images.
