The Washington Quarterly welcomes unsolicited submissions, accepted on a rolling basis at the editor's discretion. Published pieces tend to focus on global strategic changes and their public policy implications by providing sound analytical assessments that lead to policy predictions or recommendations for the near future. TWQ seeks pieces that are written in an engaging style and target an audience of informed international affairs generalists.

To be considered, please email a manuscript of about 5,000 words (not including references) to with the subject line "Manuscript Submission" and a brief abstract.

All manuscripts should be typed and double-spaced, with 1-inch margins and 12-point Times New Roman font. On the first page, please feature the author's name, a current byline, and the title of the article. Include endnotes where necessary using the Chicago Manual of Style as a guide.
