SpectreJournal.com welcomes submissions to our web publication, where we regularly feature new contributions to revolutionary Marxist theory, analysis, strategy, and debate.
We publish a diverse array of contributions and invite the following:
- Scholarly and theoretical interventions of moderate length (between 1,500 and 4,000 words)
- Book reviews (between 1,000 and 2,000 words)
- Interview transcripts (under 4,000 words)
- Visual media (including, but not limited to, political cartoons, infographics, and photography)
- Essays relevant to Marxism, fights against oppression, and workers’ struggle (under 4,000 words)
- Transcripted speeches relevant to Marxism, fights against oppression, and workers’ struggle (under 4,000 words)
- Responses to other published pieces, in particular to the “Provocations” printed in the semi-annual print journal
This list, however, is not exhaustive. We are open to new ideas you might have about what you would like to publish with us.
We encourage authors to familiarize themselves with work recently published at SpectreJournal.com. We appreciate in-depth analysis. Authors should note, however, that all else being equal, pithier and more concise work has a greater likelihood of being accepted for publication. We are also most likely to accept pieces that are very close to being publishable as-is when submitted to us for consideration. Therefore, we highly recommend that authors seek to submit work that has already been carefully drafted and revised, as part of their process in preparing a draft for submission.
SpectreJournal.com operates on an all-volunteer basis. We aim to bring great work to our readers and as much of it as possible. Our capacity to do so, however, is finite. In order to create the best experience for authors and readers, we must unfortunately decline to publish a significant number of submissions. This is no reflection on individual authors and voices. If we must regretfully decline to publish your piece, we very much hope you will consider us again for your future work and we warmly invite you to do so.
If you would like to pitch us an idea or submit a piece for us to consider, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Web Submission” in the Subject line. We thank you very much for your interest in publishing with Spectre and look forward to being in dialogue with you.Sincerely,
The Editors of Spectre
