So you want to contribute to the American Military’s Most-Trusted News Source, huh? Here’s what you need to know.
Duffel Blog delivers hilarious satirical content every day, so we are stringent in keeping the pool of writers among the very best. Our best writers have military backgrounds, a great sense of humor, can write above a third-grade level, respond positively to editorial critiques of their work and can consistently deliver great articles (at least three articles per month would be ideal, but it’s not a strict requirement).
Once we receive your submission, we’ll look it over and decide if we’d like to have you on the team. If you make the cut, you’ll hear back from an editor on the next steps. We get quite a few submissions, so please know that it may take anywhere from weeks, to possibly months, for a response. Unfortunately, we can’t respond to everyone to say they didn’t make the cut, so if you don’t hear anything back in about 90 days, feel free to give it another try.
Duffel Blog contributors are paid a flat rate for each article published. Their articles have the potential to reach thousands — and sometimes millions — of readers, in addition to skewering the national security space in a way that gets our readership thinking and hopefully, affects change. Our readership runs the gamut of the military community, from four-star generals to fresh-out-of-boot camp privates.
If you’ve read this far, you’re probably stoked to send in an application. Unfortunately, we’re not accepting any new contributors at the moment, since we have a bunch of people still waiting in the queue. Please be patient, this opportunity will open again soon.
