You there. Yes, you.
Write for Us. Here at Weird History Facts, we are always looking for new authors. If you’ve got an idea that will challenge our readers, we want to hear about it. But you don’t need to wait for an idea that will redefine history. Just aim to bring readers a fresh perspective on a topic that’s keeping you up at night.
It’s also rewarding. Thousands of your peers (and potential employers, clients, or publishers) will read your work, and you’ll also learn a lot in the process—about communicating your ideas, about writing, and even about the topic you thought you already knew so well when you started.
What we’re looking for
You may submit a rough draft, a partial draft, or a short pitch (a paragraph or two summarizing your argument and why it matters to our readers) paired with an outline. The more complete your submission is, the better feedback we can give you. Keep in mind that we only accept original content—we do not publish anything that’s been published elsewhere (including on your blog).
Make sure your submission:
- Offers a clear argument—not just a list of tips and tricks.
- Has a voice. Be bold, interesting, and human.
- Is written for an audience of historians, librarians, researchers, curious individuals, or similar.
- Is supported with convincing arguments, not just opinions. Fact-check, and cite sources where appropriate.
What we publish
We publish articles of anywhere between 800–5000 words, depending on subject complexity. 1,500 words are about average. Articles often run with a custom illustration. Articles may be casual in tone and content—great for less-intensive tutorials and posts—or rigorously structured and edited.
