How to Write for The Atlantic

The AtlanticJournos with distinctive voices can land a byline at The Atlantic, part of America’s great literary legacies. The mag was founded by a lit lover’s dream team, including Harriet Beecher Stowe, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Over the years, the mag has broadened its editorial content to include politics, the economy and cultural trends, but the mainstay of the collective remains to be editorial impartiality. “One of our taglines is ‘we are no party of clique.’ That goes back to 1857 when we were founded,” said editor Scott Stossel, “that we would be unaffiliated with any specific ideological approach or political party. That remains the case today.”

With that in mind, freelancers are welcome to think creatively about current political and cultural issues. For pitching etiquette and editor’s contact info, read How To Pitch: The Atlantic.
