For essays and columns on sports, film, television or other topics, We prefer essays and columns to be at least 500 words and at most 2,500. We recommend sending a query letter beforehand to see if we would be interested in such a piece, though this does not guarantee we will accept the finished product. However, we also accepted unsolicited submissions of completed manuscripts.

Please familiarize yourself with our content before submitting a finished piece or query.

If you are interested in producing a serial column or essay spot, please indicate this in your cover letter.

Please include a bio to be used in the event of your piece's acceptance, as well as a Twitter account and other other links to be included, if applicable.

We like almost all types of fiction, although science fiction and fantasy pieces probably aren’t a good fit for us.

Please try to keep fiction pieces under 2,000 words.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted. Previously published work is not.

We love reviews of all kinds, whether of TV, film, books, even amusement parks, and we love them more when reviews are honest and entertaining without giving the impression of self-serving feather-fluffing. We recommend sending a query letter first to make sure we don’t already have a review lined up.

We consider vacations, voyages and harrowing adventures to be the ultimate form of recess. We like travel stories with a strong narrative that begs the reader to hit the road. Travel pieces can be a bit longer but should still be kept under 3,000 words whenever possible. Pictures are welcome, and encouraged with longer pieces.
