Altcatholicah is looking for fresh, edgy, and original analysis on issues relating to gender
and spirituality and Catholicism. We favor writing that is driven by personal experience.
Submissions to Altcatholicah should be between 700 and 900 words and must be original
pieces that have not been published or submitted elsewhere. We will consider reprints on
a per-article basis and only if reprinting rights have already been secured. We welcome
hyperlinking and accompanying photographs as well. For photographs, please verify that
they are appropriately licensed or ensure permission has been granted from the owner.
Authors are responsible for fact-checking their content.
We do not reprint press releases, promotional items, or official statements from
organizations. We reserve the right to refuse to publish articles for any or no reason.
Altcatholicah also accepts blog-like pieces for its Readers’ Blog but is otherwise not a
blog. Altcatholicah recognizes that much of our interaction with gender issues occurs at
a profoundly deep and private level and that many of these personal reflections are better
expressed in a free-form space like a blog than in the form of structured articles. For
that reason, Altcatholicah welcomes your blog-like pieces for its Readers’ Blog. Blog
submissions will be vetted and, if accepted, may be edited.
To submit an article to Altcatholicah, send your submission in the body of an email
with your name, address, email, phone number, word count, and a short bio to
