The New Herald

Conversations on Politics and Culture


The New Herald welcomes submissions from any perspective, so long as they are well argued. We accept submissions in the form of non-fiction essays, criticism, and commentary on politics and culture. We also accept thoughtful, cogent reviews of albums, books, and films.

Submissions should be between 750 and 2000 words, and include a brief biography of the writer and an abstract of approximately 50 words. We will consider simultaneous submissions and previously published material if and only if they are noted as such. Notes should be kept to a minimum and formatted as endnotes in accordance with theĀ the Chicago Manual of Style. All manuscripts should be sent as Microsoft Word documents.

Writers are encouraged to discuss proposals with the editor prior to submitting articles. Please send all pitches, submissions, and other queries to
