The Dart is open to submissions in all our categories (Pop Culture, Current Events, First Person, and Humor) and also welcomes pieces in keeping with our editorial tone even if they do not fit neatly into one of the above sections. Submissions are open to everyone, but women, queer, trans and nonbinary folks, people of color, religious minorities, and people living with disabilities are particularly encouraged to contribute.
Submissions should consist of:
A. For writers with published work, we request a detailed pitch of the piece, including an estimated number of words, and links to the writer’s other samples.
B. In the case of unpublished writers, only completed pieces will be considered.
The number of accepted pieces will vary in accordance with our freelance budget, since The Dart is committed to paying all its contributors.
Please email your pitch or completed piece to TheDartWebsite@gmail.com with the subject line SUBMISSION.
