We accept submissions through Submittable for our twice-yearly print journal, and for our website, which is updated continuously.
Each issue of the magazine has three sections: ESSAYS, SYMPOSIUM and REVIEWS. Our essays blend memoir, criticism and journalism to examine the ideas and beliefs that shape our world. The symposium is a collection of responses to a question chosen by the editors (e.g., What is protest for? What is marriage for? What is privacy for?). Reviews can be about pretty much anything at all. Print essays run between 4,000 and 7,000 words; reviews and symposium articles are of medium length (1,500-3,000 words). The best way get a feel for our editorial inclinations is to read the magazine.
Contributors whose articles appear in the print journal will be compensated. The website runs articles of any length but preferably of about 1,500-3,000 words. Please note that The Point does not publish fiction or poetry, although we gladly accept criticism about fiction and poetry.
