We encourage original commentaries and features that relate to the news cycle, make sound arguments backed with evidence and have a reasonable quality of writing. If you are providing data, citing references please use hyperlinks to back your claim. Also we will not accept submissions that are written in an academic style. Please do not use footnotes or endnotes. Incorporate them in the text or use hyperlinks.
For features, it is vital that facts and ideas referred are backed with research and/or interviews. Desk-based reviews are not encouraged.
Your submission should be included in the body of the email and/or in an attached Microsoft Word document (no PDFs, please).
Note : Do NOT send your articles to various publications simultaneously. Only submissions exclusive to The Friday Times will be considered for publication.
We will not respond instantly and require at one business day – in most cases 48 hours – to respond. If you don’t receive a response from us within three business days, feel free to submit your article elsewhere.
