Writer's Guidelines

Submission Procedure
First-time submissions should be accompanied by a resume and sample clips. The more specific the query, the better. Tell us why your story suits the style and readership of our publication and how the idea is timely or significant. Short outlines are preferred over completed manuscripts.

Please note if it is a multiple submission. Inexperienced writers may work on speculation. We are not responsible for unsolicited slides, photographs or other materials. If art is available, simply note that in your query.

Should we decide to assign a story, you will be contacted by the editor.

The magazine purchases first-time North American rights. Material must be original. Freelance writers are paid about two weeks after story has been accepted. Unless agreed to in advance, we do not pay expenses.

All editorial material is protected by copyright. Law & Politics retains the right to reprint the editorial material for promotional or nonprofit use, with credit given. Stories may also appear on the magazine’s Web site.
