I plan to publish just a few pieces per week. But if you've written something you think this site's readers would enjoy I would be happy for your work to be one of them.
For nonfiction it is better to send me a pitch first, as writing on what I arbitrarily believe to be a good topic is more than half the battle.
Submissions should correspond to one of the following categories:
What's Good (nonfiction)
These are punchy reviews of a film, band or author that is, in your opinion, under-appreciated, either because it's been overlooked or misunderstood. This is an exercise in persuasion. The harder the sell the better.
Essays & General Reviews (nonfiction)
These pieces will be longer than 500 words and concern a current issue, recently released work, work of contemporary relevance or something interesting you are uniquely qualified to talk about. The aim is to provide a balanced analysis in the case of reviews and intelligence and insight in all cases.
The only criterion here is quality and, in my opinion, good stories generally depict a protagonist confronting a difficult situation. It is in adversity that we show who we are, and if a writer engages with these experiences honestly readers can learn something, however minor, about themselves.
