Pay: Standard rate is $0.55 a word
Assigning editor: Ed Lake, ED dot LAKE at AEON dot CO
Editors' advice: There is no one-size-fits-all rubric for an Aeon essay, but one commonality among successful pitches is a willingness to go deep on a topic in both research and scope -- and to have a truly extraordinary angle.
