Hypocrite Reader | Contribute


The Hypocrite Reader publishes reportage, criticism, history, sociology, theory, creative non-fiction, translations, manifestos, leaks, analysis, popular science, synthesis, verse, comics, wedding announcements, and Viking-themed erotica. Just because something doesn’t fit into any of those categories doesn’t mean we won’t publish it.


We are currently assembling our December issue, TAXONOMY. January will be SEE AMERICA, and February SENSE AND SENSATION.

Please submit article prospectuses to hypocriterdr@gmail.com. A prospectus is a paragraph or so explaining what your article is going to be and giving an approximate word count. If we don’t already know each other, it would be helpful to have a few sentences about you, including any areas of expertise and previous writing experience, but no need for a full cover letter or anything like that. At the Hypocrite Reader we practice activist editing and pay our writers only in sincere appreciation. Prospectuses for November are due on October 26th, welcome sooner. Prospectuses for any other issue are welcome now.


We often publish an advice column in our monthly issue. Advice queries are welcome at all times. Please send them to hypocriteadvice@gmail.com. Anonymity guaranteed.


If you’d like to provide thematically appropriate illustrations for a future article (photographs, collages, digital art, etc.) please send us a sample of your work at hypocriterdr@gmail.com. If we like you, we’ll suggest an article in the upcoming issue for you to illustrate.


Thanks for asking! The Hypocrite Reader accepts donations to help fund our print anthologies. If you’d like to help support the project, you can contribute through our PayPal account, which is linked to the email address hypocriterdr@gmail.com. If you would like to contribute through means other than PayPal, get in touch and we’ll be happy to work something out. All donations will go towards the publication of the anthologies and nothing else. Note that we are not registered as a nonprofit and donations are, unfortunately, not tax-deductible.


We no longer publish wedding announcements.
