How to submit articles to Salon
Salon welcomes article queries and submissions. The best way to submit
articles and story pitches is via e-mail.
We ask that you please send the text of your query or submission in
plain text in the body of your e-mail, rather than as an attached file, as
we may not be able to read the format of your file.
If you wish to contribute, please spend some time familiarizing yourself
with Salon's various sites and features. If you think you know which site
you want to submit your story or article pitch to, you can find the
appropriate editor's name on our Salon's Staff
page and send your inquiry to his or her e-mail address.

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 after three weeks,
please assume that we will not be able to use your idea or submission.
Also please note that Salon does not solicit fiction or poetry
submissions and will not be able to respond to such submissions.
