About

The Prindle Post is a digital publication of public philosophy dedicated to examining the significant ethical issues raised by current events and present in our culture. It is hosted, staffed, and maintained by The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University.

Regular writing positions for The Prindle Post are open to DePauw undergraduates from all disciplines. For those holding advanced degrees, we solicit applications for year-round staff writing positions (News Analysts) in May.

We also accept submissions from scholars addressing ethical issues in a popular context.

If you’re interested in submitting a piece for publication or a pitch for consideration, please contact Tucker Sechrest. In your email, please provide a few lines of introduction with relevant writing and academic experience, and include a brief description of your proposed original work. We suggest perusing The Prindle Post before writing to get an idea of the website’s voice and style. Our pieces typically run between 800-1200 words, with ~1800 representing the upper limit.
