Becoming an Author for The American Commentator
We seek original feature articles (1,000-2,500 words), essays (500-750 words) and reviews (500-750 words) on topics of interest to a civically engaged audience that is generally supportive of the broad ideals of American liberalism. Our ideal contributions bridge the gap between “wonky” policy articles and more informal blog posts, written in a voice that is journalistic and informed. We do not publish “canned” or ghostwritten material. We can offer a modest honorarium of $100 for longer articles and $50 for shorter ones. If you have an article idea, please email us with a short description of what you have in mind:
Sharing or Reprinting Articles
Readers are welcomed to share or reprint articles for non-profit, educational purposes, so long as they provide full attribution of the author, article title, and this magazine.
Thanks and Acknowledgments
We wish to thank Alayna Cohen, a professional editor, for her careful review of article drafts, and Joel Cohen, a long-time ADA board member, for his generous donation that is underwriting our initial two years of operation.
