Pitch an article idea

Thanks for your interest in pitching an idea to The Conversation. This page briefly explains our editorial priorities and shows you what makes a good pitch. You can then submit a pitch via the links.

What types of stories are we looking for?

The Conversation focuses on three priority areas:

  • timely, evidence-based analysis of issues making the news, such as new research or peer-reviewed FactChecks;
  • timeless, plain English ‘explainers’ of complex issues;
  • in-depth series or specials.

Before pitching, please consider a keyword search to read what we’ve published on your topic.
