Writers should read the following in full before submitting an article or proposing a live dialogue/interview.
The Sentinel Post has an informed and experienced readership with high standards. TSP readers include diverse individuals from different institutions and communities and for this reason editors seek to publish the most authentic and experienced voices on local, regional, and global politics, national security, peace and international cooperation, cultures, science and technology, and environment. TSP prefers to publish submissions by authors who have personal experience with the subjects they are writing about. TSP is dedicated to outside-the-box analysis and commentary that offer innovative perspectives and thoughts. For this reason, review the topics our writers address, see how they construct their arguments, captivate readers’ attention, offer additional insights, and cite their work on authentic evidence.
Before you submit a full article, send a brief 200-word proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org with PITCH in the subject line. The pitch needs to include your main argument and why you are well-suited to address the topic in question. Attach your bio or CV and any recent publications. If we accept your pitch we’ll ask for a full submission to review and edit for publication. We do not accept previously published submissions and your content must be exclusive to TSP. (TSP is a small shop and reviewing and editing submissions take time, so please communicate with us in advance before sending a submitted article to another outlet.) Our published articles are widely read and understood, but any non-English terminology or technical languages should be spelled out and explained. Start your article with a provocative question or short statement that can catch the reader’s attention from the get-go. Submissions should cite any factual statements (events, statistics, speeches, interviews, etc.) using hyperlinks.
Your article will be reviewed by subject matter experts, and you should be willing to work with us and expect criticism and questions necessary for improving your submitted article. TSP publishes commentary and book reviews of 800 to 1,000 words, op-eds up to 1,500 words, and researched-based articles of 2,000 to 2,500 words.
