The Gadfly seeks out essays on philosophy, education, and technology, broadly defined. Our essays are typically 2,500-4,000 words in length. We like stylish, intricate, and accessible writing, and we welcome our contributors to play with tone and format as suits their interest. We also invite feedback to the essays that have already been published.

The Gadfly is committed to publishing a diverse range of voices, and we welcome authors who illuminate philosophy’s blind spots. Whether a pitch for an essay or a long-form think piece, we invite your thoughts. Please send all submissions, questions, and comments to
