Submit your essay to

We welcome your essays for publication in our Saturday newsletter. Keep them between about 500 and 750 words. Articles should be well-written and thought-provoking. We’re not looking for “how-to” or travel articles. The writing is almost as important as the subject matter. Make readers think!

If we publish your essay in the Saturday newsletter we’ll send you a $75 Amazon gift certificate. If we use it elsewhere on our website, we’ll discuss payment with you. If we love your writing, we’ll invite you to contribute again, perhaps on a regular basis with payment in money, not a gift certificate.

Tips: Write tight with no wasted words. Read your essay out loud when you’re finished. If it sounds stiff or academic, keep working on it. If it sounds conversational, as if you were speaking it to a friend, that’s good.

If you are serious about writing for us and not an experienced writer or journalist, we recommend you read The Elements of Style and The Associated Press Guide to News Writing.

We’ll try to get back to you within three days of your submission.

We highly recommend you write it elsewhere and then paste in here.
