Salon welcomes article queries and submissions. The best way to submit articles and story pitches is via email with the words “Editorial Submission” in the subject line. Send your query or submission in plain text in the body of your email, rather than as an attached file.

Please spend some time familiarizing yourself with Salon’s various sections and regular features. If you wish to contribute, please send us an email and tell us a little about yourself — your background as a writer and qualifications for writing a particular story. If you have clips you can send us via email, or URLs of pages that contain your work, please send us a representative sampling (no more than three or four, please).

Email your submission to the appropriate editor for your content — either the politics, culture, life or news editor. You can find the editors’ names and email addresses on our Salon Staff page.

We do our best to respond to all inquiries, but be aware that we are sometimes inundated. If you have not heard back from us within three weeks, please assume that we will not be able to use your idea or submission.

Also note that Salon does not solicit fiction or poetry submissions and will not be able to respond to such submissions.
