Guest Pieces

We’re looking for original pieces that explore science through a social justice lens. We welcome submissions in a range of media (writing, video, podcasts, comics, and more) – so feel free to be creative*!

If you’re interested in submitting your work, please submit a work-in-progress or draft piece to with your name and preferred method of communication (phone or email preferred). Please include “CONTENT SUBMISSION” in the subject line of your email.

Please note that:

  • We reserve the right to suggest edits to pieces – expect to work with one of our editors.
  • Furthermore, we reserve the right to reject pieces that do not match with the mission, vision, and values of our blog.
  • Finally, by submitting a piece to Free Radicals, you agree to grant Free Radicals the right to keep your piece published on our site indefinitely, and are warranting that you have exclusive rights to grant us this right.

*If you are interested in illustrating art pieces to be used as cover images for other content pieces and not in creating science-related content, head over to our Artist Submission page for details!
