Call for Anarchist Writers

We at the Center believe ideas matter. We believe thoughtful discourse enriches, rather than undermines, anarchist praxis. We believe that a world free of compulsion and degradation is achievable through, in part, a culture permeated by anarchist ideas. Our mission as an openly anarchist think tank is to thoughtfully articulate and defend anarchist ideas. We strive to present the inspiring, yet practical, alternative of anarchism and serve as a consistent source of engaging thought.

If you’re an anarchist and you have something to say, we want to hear from you. If you yearn for a better future, free of power and authority, but value productive dialogue over tribal posturing or armchair theorizing, we want to hear from you. If you’re angry about or acting against police brutality, military occupation, ICE deportations, mass incarceration, social injustice, or structural poverty, and want to channel that anger into something that can somehow, somewhere, sometime change someone’s mind for the better, we want to hear from you. Whether it’s your first time publishing anywhere or just with us, C4SS is always welcoming new writers.

We offer $25 for your first article we publish. Send essays or commentary of around 500-800 words to and we’ll work with you the rest of the way. We’re particularly interested in anarchist commentary on current events.

We are also looking for folks with the proper equipment interested in recording some of our expansive archive of literature (current recordings can be found here). C4SS will compensate you ($10 per recording starting rate) for new audio recordings of:

  • Feature articles
  • Classic essays
  • Mutual Exchange contributions
  • Book chapters

Audio submissions and/or any questions about audio submission should be sent to
