We are always on the lookout for new writers, especially those from underrepresented communities. If you'd like to submit an article, review, poem, story or artwork, email the editor, Armen Gakavian with either a draft or an abstract. Before emailing us, please read our guidelines here.


Comments by readers

Readers are encouraged to join the conversations and add their comments to the articles. Please keep comments succinct. Full (real) names are required for comments. We reserve the right not to publish or to remove remarks we judge to be aimed at antagonism or 'trolling'.

Comment Code of Conduct (based on Sojourners' code):

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Ethos online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree — even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by reporting comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Ethos staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
