We can only publish essays which are free of copyright restrictions.
We assume that any material that you send us is either in the public domain or
is written by yourself, and that we are free to publish it. Short quotations
from copyrighted material are usually acceptable.
As noted on our visitor essay menu, we don't publish essays
advocating spanking or other corporal punishment of children, or essays
dealing with conspiracy theories or doomsday scenarios.
We prefer essays that contain fewer than 150 lines or 10,000 words.
