CONTRIBUTOR GUIDELINES - ARTICLES
Please read these guidelines carefully prior to submitting. If you do not follow these guidelines you won't receive a response from us.
Eureka Street will consider unsolicited submissions of up to 800 words. Please review these guidelines carefully and submit your article using the form below. (Note: for longer pieces please send query to email@example.com)
Articles should provide humane, ethical analysis or commentary on politics, religion, popular culture or current events in Australia or the world. Payment for freelancers is $200 per article, paid for exclusive first publication rights (see PAYMENT section below). We will also pay $200 for first publication rights of short fiction and 'creative non-fiction' up to 1000 words.
Prior to making your submission, please read Eureka Street and familiarise yourself with the kinds of topics and styles that appeal to us. We receive many submissions from writers who do not seem to have a sense of what Eureka Street typically publishes. Given the overall volume of submissions we receive, such pieces are very unlikely to be accepted.
We like to receive submissions with:
1. as little formatting as possible (no images, indents or double spacing)
2. single spacing after full stops
3. 'single' quotation marks
4. per cent, not % or percent
5. relevant links
The Editor has final say on all submissions. While we strive to respond to every submission that follows the submission guidelines, we are unfortunately not able to give individualised feedback.
Eureka Street also accepts unsolicited POETRY submissions, which should be emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Published poets receive a share of $50 allocated for poetry each week. Please note we receive a large volume of poetry and our poetry editor works very limited hours, and so a response is likely to take some months. Simultaneous submissions are okay for poetry only, on the proviso that you advise us immediately if a poem is to be withdrawn.
