Submit to TNI

We are always looking for sharp pitches on topics unrelated to our magazine issue. If you have an essay, pitch, or the simply germ of an idea for an essay or review, please write to convince us we should run it. If you don’t hear back from us within two weeks, please understand we are overwhelmed with the volume of submissions we get, and that we wish you luck placing it elsewhere.


We invite you to submit pitches for inclusion in our February issue. This issue will be composed entirely of interviews.

As a genre or form, the interview can be porous and experimental, and at its best can better explore ideas in their fluidity and contradiction than the essay. We are looking for interviews that demonstrate an exceptional command of the form more than we are looking for exceptional subjects — but if you can pull one in, don’t be shy about submitting, too.

We’re seeking transcripts from 1,500 to 3,000 words, and you would need to be able to turn in a draft no later than January 9th. Please forward this call to anyone you may think would be interested.

We recognize logistics can be tricky. For inclusion in this issue, please send pitches with an indication of how realistic your plans to conduct your interview already are to with the subject line “INTERVIEW” by 12 pm December 27th. We will respond to accepted pitches after that date.
