We are always open to submissions and welcome unsolicited contributions.
What do you need to be an S&C contributor?
We look for fresh, challenging and perceptive content, be it news, commentary or satire.
We are open-minded about form and genre, and will consider news reports, features, polemics, op-eds, interviews, profiles, satire (in all glorious forms), memoir, travel writing, poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction.
I’m funny – can I write, draw, photo-shop or film satire for S&C?
Yes. One of our inspirations is Private Eye and we would love to include more satire – visual and written – in S&C. Find out more here.
How do I submit?
Please send your work to: [email protected]
What happens once I’ve sent my work in?
Once a submission has been accepted for publication we reserve the right to sub-edit the text in order to improve its style, flow and eloquence. If we need to make more substantial line-edits to a piece we will contact the author and work with him or her towards this goal. In all cases, though, the editors have the final say over all material – whether articles or comments – posted on Star & Crescent.
Do I get paid?
The Editors-in-Chief are currently looking at ways to pay our contributors but we are unable to offer payment at the present time.
