Blacklisted News is an independent platform for critical coverage of world news and beyond.
We don't shy away from controversy, and welcome contributions (text and visual) that display new and creative content, excellent writing style, and in-depth analysis. Successful submissions will fit the style, tone, and topics we cover. We do not publish poetry or fiction.
If you’re a writer pitching Blacklisted News for the first time, email it to us with the word "submission" in the subject line to Tips@BlacklistedNews.com. Submissions should be between 800 and 1,200 words to Tips@BlackListedNews.com. Please include your name with a short biography and links to author blogs / social network sites.
If a member of our staff has not confirmed receipt beyond this message within two business days after you sent it, your submission has been declined.
Usually you will hear faster than that if we’re interested, especially if your submission is on a trending or breaking news topic.
We will publish stories that have appeared in other publications as long as the author currently holds the rights to the story.
We expect the pieces to be of high quality as we will not engage in a thorough editing process. Pieces that are approved should be ready for publication. Copyediting your own work and submitting a clean finished copy will increase the chances of your submission being accepted.
Blacklisted News firmly adheres to the principles of journalistic integrity. Submissions selected for publication are expected to live up to high standards of factual accuracy, source accountability, and proper accreditation where necessary.
Before sending your article, please familiarize yourself with the type of stories Blacklisted News publishes.
No follow up calls, please. We read all submissions and will contact you within five business days if we are going to publish your article. If you don't hear from us within a week of submission, it is reasonable to assume we will not be running your piece, but please continue to submit to us.
By submitting your work, you are giving Blacklisted News the right to publish and use the material in accordance the Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) license Blacklisted News operates under.
Material published on our site may be shared with other sites provided that the material shared is properly attributed by author and publication. This will increase the visibility of your work and provide greater access to readers from different backgrounds and regions.
