Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of The Bridge community. We have a strong editorial team and are dedicated to helping you find your voice and contribute to the discussion in a meaningful way. Once published on The Bridge, your story will be read by many others in the policy, national security, and military affairs area. We’re dedicated to making sure each and every post is widely read.

We’ve found that articles in the 1000–1500 word range work best, but if you find you can accomplish your argument in fewer words, or need a bit more room to round out your argument, please do not feel constrained. Given our broad national security-focused readership, we ask that your submissions be free of service-specific jargon, acronyms, and idiosyncratic style. Many of our writers are service members or veterans, and we value that as this makes us unique. But we ask that your articles are written for a general audience rather than a service-specific one.

Submit your article in a Word (or other word processing software format) document to  Our editors will respond as quickly as possible with an initial impression of your work and a tentative publication date, based upon the amount of outstanding material we have in our publication queue.  Do not hesitate to contact our editorial team if you have any questions.

We look forward to working with you and thank you again for your time and effort. Please let us know if you have any questions at all!
