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 and wish you luck placing it elsewhere.


We invite you to submit pitches for inclusion in our October issue, COPS 2.

Our October issue will be a sequel to TNI Vol 7. Cops. We’re interested in pieces on:

The rise of right wing independent militias, both as the origin of the modern day cops system and a bad alternative, guard labor, how decentralizing police creates a new market for privatized police, and imagining the non-fascist alternative to cops.

These are some of the questions we have in mind:

What would a post-police state look like/require?
What individuals or groups are doing work on police policy that is compelling/worth covering? Answers to what to do instead of relying on cops often seem pitched at what you can do by yourself, but is there a systematic alternative?
What are models of resistance to the police state that offer viable alternatives for community justice efforts? We aren’t limited in our scope to municipal police departments proper and are including the various forces that are de facto deputized to kill. We’re also not limited to US based policing.

Pitches are due Monday, 8/17, and we will respond to all accepted pitches after that date. We’re looking for critical essays around 2k words, and relevant interviews and reviews. You must be able to submit a draft by September 2nd.
