Have you read Contrary’s Submission Guidelines?
Commentary — We favor commentary that delivers its message less through exposition than through artistry. The commentary we select is often lyrical, narrative, or poetic. But our view of the genre is broad. “Commentary” is our word for the stuff that others define negatively as non-fiction, nominally as essay, or naively as truth. Examples you can find in our own pages include “Plum Island” by Andrew Coburn, “Ascension” by Kevin Heath, and “A Spring Sunday” by Heywood Broun. Our commentary editor is Jeff McMahon.This form is for submitting commentary only.
