Intellectual Conservative welcomes all topics of articles from writers that are written in an intellectual style, from conservative to libertarian perspectives. This can mean anything from a writing style similar to William F. Buckley, an article on a philosophical topic, or a piece that is well-researched and/or investigated. Intellectual Conservative is particular to investigative reporting, which means if you are willing to write your piece as a primary source (interview or witness the primary actors yourself), your article will stand a much better chance at being accepted for publication.
We appreciate articles on timely hot topics. We do not require exclusivity; because we do not pay for publication at this time, you are welcome to post your articles on other sites. Unlike some sites, we are not concerned with the length of articles. If you cannot write a coherent essay for a nationally renowned syndication in under 750 words, then send it to us.
UPDATE: As of late 2015, we have become short staffed and are moving to a model of giving contributors their own logins to post articles. We apologize for not posting some of your articles during the last few months. Please email us requesting a login – new contributors too, just include an article too so we can determine if it is the style of writing we are looking for.
Please submit articles to articles-at-intellectualconservative.com and in the subject line of the email put “submission – your name – article title/topic.” For example, in the subject line, you might put “submission – John Smith – Affirmative Action.” Please note that the address firstname.lastname@example.org has been discontinued.
Please attach your article in Word, or if that is not possible, copy and paste it into the body of the email or attach it as a .txt file. If you are a new contributor, please include a one or two line bio about yourself at the end of the article, where you can include a link to your web site if you have one, or any archive of past articles you may have, and a profile photo if you want (it will automatically grab your photo from gmail or wordpress if you already have one). We also archive your articles automatically on our site.
We occasionally review books. If you are a publisher or writer and would like us to review the book for you, email us at articles – at – intellectualconservative.com. Or if your book has already been reviewed, you can email us the review at that address.
Unfortunately there is not enough staff to post every excellent article we receive, nor to respond to additional inquiries, but if you are a new contributor, we will let you know if we decide to run your article.
