If you can print it, we want to see it! Empire Times accepts all submissions. Feel free to contact us to discuss your ideas or request pitches. Not sure what to write? Read our handy list of topics and ideas.

Word Counts:
1 page: 500 words max
2 pages: 1100 words max
3 pages: 1700 words max
4 pages: 2300 words max

Check that you’ve (1) used the correct formatting and (2) included all the necessary information! It’s super easy, but leaving it out will make our job harder or mean us chasing you up later… Read the formatting guidelines here.

Please let the editors know if you will not be able to meet a deadline, would like to schedule a meeting, improve your skills, would like a media pass to a reviewable event or have any questions or concerns.
