Sightings is an online publication of the Martin Marty Center at the University of Chicago Divinity School.
Sightings articles provide critical analysis of current issues and events at the intersections of religion and art, business, education, the media or politics. Articles run between 550 and 700 words, and their aim is to “spread light, not heat.”
Sightings has about 7,300 e-mail subscribers, and columns are frequently reprinted (for example, on the History News Network, Religion Dispatches, Reuters, and other websites and blogs), and are often used in classrooms and pulpits.
Previous columns give a good indication of the topical range and tone for acceptable essays. Previous issues of Sightings are archived here:
Sightings does not publish book or movie reviews, fictional pieces or poetry.
