Touchstone Submission Requirements
If you are not well acquainted with Touchstone, before submitting an article, please read several copies of the magazine or a selection of the articles on our website to see the subjects we treat and the way we treat them.
Articles must be written for a broad audience of traditional Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox believers.
The New Renan
Emil Trautt, ed. and trans.
Éditions LaGrange, 2015
332 pages, $24.95, hardcover
Submissions are evaluated by a group of reviewers, a process that may take up to six weeks.
Touchstone subjects all accepted submissions to rigorous editing, with particular attention to clarity and economy of expression. Submitting an article indicates agreement to work with the editor in creating an article in our style and to our standards. The author will have an opportunity to review and approve the “house-edited” version of his article before press-time. No piece will be published that does not meet its author's approval, but if the editor and author cannot agree on the final form, it is possible that the article could die on the vine.
If you are not sure that what you have in mind to write will work for Touchstone, you may send a preliminary query to the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org, outlining your idea. Note that a positive response to a query does not guarantee acceptance of the submitted article, which will be evaluated separately.
Payment & Rights:
Original features, Views, communiqués, and reviews will be paid at the rate of 20 cents per word as published in the final version.
Authors receive two complimentary copies of the issue in which their piece is published. Additional copies may be purchased separately.
Touchstone buys the right to the first publication of an original article, with the following conditions:
These conditions also apply to a reprinted article that has been reworked for publication in Touchstone.(Revised July 27, 2023)
