Rights: You keep all rights to your articles. We hope you will let us host them on the page indefinitely, but if at any time you need to have your work removed, we will do so within one week after the request is received.
Needs: We are looking for nonfiction articles on violence in human history. This is a broad topic, and we are looking to build an extensive collection, but there are thousands of existing web sites on various wars, so we are looking more for information on capital punishment through the ages, torture, confinement, sadistic rituals, and unpleasantness of that nature. We are also looking for information on various fighting styles and martial codes from pre-history up to 21st century. Our intent is to build a reference for writers and anyone else curious about these subjects.
If you're not sure whether your subject fits our needs, feel free to query. We accept reprints.
Length: 500-3000 words (flexible)
