Submission Guidelines

We welcome submissions, both for the website and for the print magazine. They may be sent to submissions [at] Please note: Due to high volume, we are currently unable to confirm receipt of submission. We do not consider simultaneous submissions and fiction or poetry submissions.

The best way to learn what may suit Dissent is simply to read the magazine and the website. We accept writing on politics, economics, and culture. We discourage footnotes.

Dissent takes pride in bringing new writers into the magazine, and we make an effort to read and reply to every submission. If you do not hear back from us within 3–4 weeks and decide to send your submission elsewhere, please send us a note. Let us know in the subject line of your email if your article is time sensitive.

Please write to inquiries [at] with any questions.
