Thank you for considering a submission to The Subtext. This space runs only with the help and words of amazing writers like you. So please, don’t be shy or self critical. We can’t wait to hear your ideas, read your articles and share them widely with the world. 

While we want you to feel open to write what’s interesting to you, we also love a brief. Here are the categories you can submit to and some ideas of the kind of content we’re looking for within each one. Of course, don’t hesitate to draw outside of these lines if inspiration strikes elsewhere.

Please note, not all submissions are guaranteed to be published but we do guarantee that we will read, review, and respond to each and every one.
