How can I write for The Curator?
The Curator publishes three essays per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday; each in the range of 800-1500 words) that evaluate or reflect upon contemporary culture. Our goal is to consider, as creators and participants in our culture, how the world is now and what it might mean to create the “world as it ought to be.” We are always looking for new voices and perspectives, so, no matter your ideological alignment, if you have an idea, we’d love to hear from you.
