Wired Ideas is looking for writers to submit essays regarding science and technology.


WIRED seeks to illuminate how technology is changing every aspect of our lives—from culture to business, science to design. It is the essential source of information and ideas that make sense of a world in constant transformation. WIRED’s ideas section publishes argument-driven essays on WIRED-related topics, written by journalists, academics, and other subject-matter experts.


Essays should be forward-looking instead of purely historical. Most pieces are grounded in current technological debates (broadly defined). They are open to other proposals styles.

There is particular interest in voices and analysis from outside the United States and from groups historically underrepresented in technology and technology writing


$500 and increase if there’s reporting.
