Please send pitches to with the subject line “INSIDERS” by the end of the day on September 25. We will respond to accepted pitches after that date. If you don’t hear from us by October 1, it means we have passed on the pitch.

We are always looking for sharp pitches on topics unrelated to our magazine issue. If you have an essay, pitch, or simply the 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.
