Atlantic Bulletin publishes commentaries on every aspect of Western statecraft. Although you will find that most of these commentaries have a realist or revisionist bent, it should be noted that we are committed to fostering a culture of pluralism and vigorous debate, and as such, welcome contributions from a wide range of viewpoints.

You should also be aware that the website is run on a voluntary and not-for-profit basis, which means that we are unfortunately unable to pay contributors.

Style and Content Guidelines

Most of our articles fall into 1 of 4 categories:

  1. Long Form (Over 2,000 words). Lengthy ‘think pieces’ with a narrative focus.
  2. Opinion (500-2,000 words). Shorter pieces reflecting the author’s particular—often polemical—perspective on a certain subject.
  3. Debate (250-1,000 words). A dialogue between two opposing viewpoints.
  4. Arts and Letters (500 words plus). Cultural criticism and reviews.

And we encourage prospective authors to adhere to the following rules:

  1. Use Microsoft Word for all submissions.
  2. Use the Chicago referencing style (footnotes/endnotes).
  3. Avoid obscure jargon.
  4. Do not resort to profanity, unless absolutely necessary.
