Catapult is accepting pitches for columns. We encourage you to check out a few of our previously published columns to get a feel for the type of work we’d like to see from our regular contributors. We pay for all pieces that are published.


When you submit you column pitch, be sure to include:

  • A suggested title for the column
  • An overview of the column’s theme, in as much detail as possible: what your column will be about, the reason(s) why you’d like to explore this particular topic, and why you think it would be a good fit for Catapult
  • Pitches for the first three installments you will write, if selected 
  • At least three clips of previously published work (blog posts are acceptable)

Please submit one complete column pitch at a time. If you are in touch with a Catapult editor, please feel free to contact them directly and do not double-submit to Submittable and a Catapult editor.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
