We only accept complete, 750–1750 word submissions.

For best results: read Human Events. Use our previously published pieces as a guide for styling your writing, and to get a sense of what we want from you. We want your voice, and we want you to stand behind your arguments. We value novelty and insight; if you are simply repeating an observation we’ve heard before, we are usually not interested.

We are aggressive editors. Because we are selective with our published pieces, we can devote our time to ensuring that your final product is as good as it can be. If you recoil at the idea of having your work edited either substantively or stylistically, Human Events is the wrong place to submit your piece.

We also compensate contributors for published articles for a fixed fee. We recognize that making a strong argument and writing a great article takes time, and that our editing process is more rigorous than most. So if we publish you, we will pay you.

  • Human Events does not accept submissions by mail or by fax, and we cannot be responsible for the loss or return of unsolicited pieces.
  • We do not consider simultaneous submissions or material that has been previously published elsewhere.
  • If you don’t hear back from us within 7 days, please understand we are overwhelmed with the volume of submissions we get, and that we wish you luck placing it elsewhere.
