Doublethink welcomes unsolicited articles and pitches. We’re looking for topical, unique and controversial pieces on policy, ideas, culture, books, arts, science, and other issues of interest to young professionals. We prize original reporting and research, sharp thinking, insightful analysis, and wit. We’re based in Washington, D.C., but we’re interested in articles focusing on life outside the Beltway and internationally. We’ll consider submissions from just about anyone, though part of our mission is to publish writers who haven’t had much exposure.

Short pitches (2-3 paragraphs) are preferred, but feel free to send completed pieces, along with short summaries. No need to have previous writing credits, but if you do, it doesn’t hurt to mention them, or even send clips. Published writers may receive a small honorarium. Submissions can be sent to Joel Gehrke.
