As It Ought to Be is a progressive forum which hopes to encourage humane thought and action related to contemporary political and cultural matters. We’re always interested in adding to our stellar body of regular contributors and also frequently feature guest columnists.
Work that has originally appeared in AIOTB has been reprinted in such venues as the Boston Globe, Counterpunch, Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, and Best American Essays 2015 . We welcome reprint inquiries and are always excited to see an extended reach of the talent and thoughtfulness of our contributors. There is no charge for reprints, all we ask is that AIOTB is credited as the original publisher with a hyperlink (when possible) back to the post at our site.
For general inquiries, including questions about submitting your work to AIOTB, please email the editorial staff at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are especially interested in the following genres:
- Responses to current events in politics and culture
- Philosophical essays and social commentary
- Art and literary criticism
- Book reviews
- Interviews with writers, artists, scholars, activists, and community leaders
