The North Star seeks submissions, both written and multimedia, covering issues that merit discussion on the anti-capitalist left. Of particular interest is material relevant to the task of building a credible, mass anti-capitalist movement in the United States. To this end, we hope to expand our range of coverage to include not only intra-left debate but also polemics and exposés directed at our common foes, including not only the reactionary right but also, and perhaps especially, the moderate reactionaries of the Democratic Party and their enablers. We also welcome cultural critique, personal essays, reports from the streets—in short, anything that deserves the attention of anti-capitalists interested in building a broad, nonsectarian movement.
Send submissions to: editors[at]thenorthstar.info
The ideal piece will be between 500-3000 words, although longer or multiple-part pieces will be considered when the topic merits serious engagement. Articles should be written for as broad an audience as possible; if you must use jargon, explain and justify it. Submissions should be formatted for the Web: embedded hyperlinks are preferred over footnotes, and the incorporation of images is encouraged.
While we are willing to republish material published elsewhere, please indicate if your submission has been previously published. We give preference to original submissions and material that has otherwise not been widely distributed or discussed. Please include a short author bio of no more than two sentences, disclosing any relevant affiliations.
In keeping with our goal of fostering discussion and debate, we encourage North Star authors to participate in the comments sections of their articles, responding to critiques and answering questions.
