Cognoscenti features opinions, perspectives and essays from some of New England’s best and brightest thinkers. We publish commentaries on politics, culture, sports, law, medicine, innovation, religion, media, parenting and style. In selecting our pieces, we consider the particular expertise of the author, as well as the timeliness, originality and strength of argument. But above all, we look for great writing and provocative thought leadership.
If you’d like to write for Cognoscenti, send your submission, pasted into your email and not as an attachment, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please tell us in one line what the piece is about, and please tell us in one line who you are.
If we feel that your submission is a good fit with minimal revisions, we will be in touch. We do our utmost to respond to everyone in a timely fashion, but we cannot respond to everyone. If you do not hear from us after 72 hours, consider shopping your piece elsewhere.
Here are some things for writers to keep in mind:
Upon request, WBUR will pay a one-time $50 honorarium for each published commentary. Re-purposed or cross-posted content is occasionally accepted but will not be compensated. Upon acceptance of your first submission, you will be required to sign a standard author agreement release form, which deals with copyright and ownership issues.
