Editorial Submissions

So you got something you want to say, huh?

The American Prospect welcomes unsolicited contributions. See the guidelines below for submitting an article either for print or online publication.

Submitting Articles for the Print Magazine

Writers who wish to submit articles to the print publication are strongly encouraged to send brief query letters (500 words or less) rather than full-length articles. Please briefly summarize your article proposal and your relevant experience. We do not accept articles or parts of articles that have been published elsewhere.

Submissions should be sent by e-mail to: editors@prospect.org. Make sure the subject line says "Submission."

Please do not send submissions via snail mail.
