Write For Us

One of the values that undergird The Elephant is plurality and diversity of ideas thus anyone can write for The Elephant. Please read the following guidelines before submission, and if you have any questions, email us We may occasionally approach writers to ask if we may reprint their work. Or philosophizing on cultural kitsch or personal objects of value. Due to the high volume of story pitches, please expect at least a one week delay in us replying.

We pride ourselves in providing engaging content, and we do that through a vibrant team ethos. The fact is, we enjoy what we do with a passion for all things pop culture. If you have not heard from us after 14 days, you can email again to query the status of your pitch.

Any story that has been published elsewhere, including your blog. Thoughtfully discuss ethical and social issues in the creative industry. All student work will be read by our staff, volunteers from the Times newsroom and/or by educators from around the country.

Our contributors include unpublished writers, frontline activists, academics, campaigners and experienced journalists. Articles published in the print edition are proactively commissioned according to issue themes, and written specifically with the magazine in mind. If you are up for a fun challenge and want to be part of a constantly evolving project, then let us know. What we can provide is a platform, one supported by a dedicated team, extensive social media promotion, an editorial process, and fellow writers who are fans first, just like you. The Internet is full of articles so you must make yours worth the reader’s time and attention. We look to publish articles that go deep, make an original argument or explore under-reported angles.


We read each email and regularly answer inside one business day.

The goal of this series is to demystify what good writing looks like, and encourage students to experiment with some of those techniques themselves. All our prompts are open for comment by students 13 and up, and every comment is read by Times editors before it is approved. To participate, they’ll have to think deeply about the cultural and artistic works that matter most to them, then communicate why to others. That’s not just a skill they need in school, it’s a way of thinking that can serve them for life.

But these days, all of us are invited to be reviewers — to rate and comment on everything from books and movies to yoga classes and electric toothbrushes. Material submitted to the Humanist may also be considered for publication at , which houses the online version of the magazine, and also features original material. In addition to our regular staple of nonfiction prose, we consider humor, poetry, short fiction , and cartoons. Illustrators and photographers should submit samples of their work. Photos and artwork intended to accompany a manuscript may be submitted in high-resolution electronic form with photo permission information. Manuscripts can still be submitted in hard copy though we greatly prefer e-mail.

The editorial team will have final say on your articles being approved for publication. Although we don’t currently have any advertised roles, we’re always open to hearing from talented writers and other media professionals. The best way to get in touch is via the email address at the bottom of this page – that way when a relevant opportunity does arise you might be the first to hear about it. We have exceptionally long lead times so time-sensitive stories (the debut of new technology, back-to-school guides or holiday-related articles) must to be pitched six months in advance. We ask that all writers supply copyright-approved images to run alongside their text.

Do you want to share your interpreting subject matter expertise with a wider audience? Do you want to contribute a valuable resource to a young but growing profession? (And how about seeing your name in lights as a published author!) We are seeking proposals and manuscripts for interpreter training publications from new and published authors.

Tell us what the story is about and why it is important. Sign up to receive employee engagement and company culture articles by email. By submitting an article, you understand that you agree to this agreement document. It is not permitted to repurpose the article on any other source.

Politics, Culture, Reflections, Ideas, Op-Eds, Data Stories or Long Reads and tell us where your story fits. Please read through The Elephant to get a sense of the voice and features that we have published. The Curator explores the meaning and matters of the heart and spirit reflected in cultural objects, experiences, and the arts.
