Since its beginning in 2008, The Curator has sought to celebrate cultural artifacts and inspire its readers to engage deeply with–and ultimately create–culture which enriches life and broadens experience.
Our hope is to be a place of conversation through an amalgamation of artifacts, quotes, image galleries, long form essays, videos, and other media as an expression of the human heart.
How to Submit
Read The Curator. If you want to write for us, get to know our style and content.
Send us a pitch (200-250 words) of the yet-to-be-written article. Tell us where the piece is heading, and make your opinion known. If this is your first submission to The Curator, please also provide at least two writing samples.
If your pitch is accepted, be your own proofreader. If you use names, dates and places in your piece, double-check all facts and spelling. Use one space between sentences. Please note that we are tired of the words literally, obviously, clearly, unique, seems.
Send your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We prefer submissions as Word attachments. The Curator pays (a very small sum) upon publication. All articles will be edited for length, grammar, content, and style.
The Curator retains first publication rights for six months from publication date; after that, reprints may be permitted with written permission. Email for more information and reprint requests.
Though we believe that our goals are those that people of faith, as well as people in the fine arts, should and do embrace, the common factor in our audience is not a specific vocation or religious persuasion, but the desire to help create “the world that ought to be”. The Curator provides a way for people who are interested in human dignity and responsible creativity to discover people and products that are contributing positively in our culture, or that raise important questions about the nature of humanity. We claim no singular affinity toward “highbrow” art or “pop” culture.
