Submit Article Idea
Are you on board with what Comment is all about? Do you think you have the next best thing that we absolutely NEED to publish? Good. Then submit us a pitch, we’d love to read it. But here’s a few steps you’ll need to follow:
First, skim the Cardus Style Guide for just a little more about us, the kinds of pitches we want, and the nitty-gritty details about format.
All interested writers are invited to submit article ideas or abstracts to us for consideration. Enclosed with your pitch, please include a writing sample and/or a few recent clips of your work.
Voice: Comment aspires to honest, humble thought; clear, simple writing; and courteous, civil dialogue. Comment is not interested in trendiness, but rather to serious reasoning underpinned by a Biblical view of the world. As an opinion journal, Comment also does not publish journalistic reporting, but does seek thoughtful, honest discussion.
Length limit: We promise to read every submission under one hundred (100) words; any more than that, and you’re taking your chances it slides off the pile. Authors we agree to publish will be reimbursed within 30 days of article acceptance, at a rate to be determined.
Obligation: Comment has no obligation to publish submitted work, and reserves the rights to change publication dates and/or media. Also, please expect to be edited. Should Comment choose not to publish a work it has solicited (in writing), a fee of 40% of the committed payment will apply. Should Comment accept to publish your work, you will be paid within 30 days of your piece’s acceptance as final by the editor-in-chief. In general, Comment publishes only original works.
