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.
