Send your pitch or submission, either pasted in the body of the email, or as an attachment (or both) to [email protected].

RD publishes reporting, analysis, commentary, and film/book/TV reviews, by scholars, journalists, writers, and activists.

For a story tied directly to the news cycle, or an impending event please mark your submission URGENT in the subject line of the email. We’ll make every effort to respond within 12 hours on weekdays—weekends may take longer.

RD does not re-publish material that has appeared elsewhere—even if only on a personal blog. And we don’t cross-post from other venues.

Feature stories typically run between 750 and 1500 words, with some exceptions at either end.

Be sure to include an author bio 2-3 sentences long with your submission.

For more information please read this one-page tip sheet on writing for RD.

Because of the volume of submissions we can’t respond personally to every query, but we’re available for questions or clarification at [email protected].
