Seven Scribes

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Want to submit something to Seven Scribes? Great! You're in the right place.

We suggest checking our About Us page first to ensure that your submission fits with our site vision. We are focused on providing nuance and new angles to online discussions, with fresh perspectives and off-the-wall ideas. We are less focused on recaps or instant reads of what’s going on: other sites handle that just fine. We consider all submissions, stories, and art (including music) that fit within our principles and vision, but please try to keep them under 5,000 words unless the form (novella, etc) dictates. 

We will follow up with you within 10 business days. Please note that we retain all rights to reprinting or republishing work published at Seven Scribes. Our rates start at $80 flat for essays, fiction, artworks, and poetry and $100 flat for reported pieces, with rates negotiated upwards based on length, complexity, and/or the depth of reporting.

For more information (and general advice on freelancing for this and other sites), check out our Storytellers Guides and NPR Code Switch’s pitching guide. Feel free to email us with questions and general advice as well.
