The Sun publishes interviews with innovative and provocative thinkers. We like interviews that stretch us intellectually yet remain accessible.

We’re always on the lookout for voices not traditionally heard in the mass media and are particularly interested in interviews with women and people of color.

We publish only question-and-answer-style interviews: no profiles.

Before you conduct an interview, send us a query telling us about the person you want to interview and what topics you plan to cover. (If you’ve already done the interview, no query is necessary.)

Transcripts should be at least six thousand words and can be as much as fifteen thousand. In-person interviews are best.
