Pitching Undark

Our editorial team meets to consider pitches once per week, generally on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. EST. If you would like to submit an idea for our publication, please use the form below, keeping our meeting schedule in mind (that is, if you submit an idea on a Wednesday afternoon, it may not get full consideration for another week). You will receive more specific instructions when you select the type of project from the drop-down menu below.

Important: If you have not contributed to Undark before, your proposal must include a brief author bio and clips of, or links to, previously published work.
