Editorial Submissions


We are always interested in developing new editorial talent and expanding our pool of writers.

Please contact us with pitches before submitting a full-length article. Initial contact can be made to John Mooney or Maire Crowe.


NJ Spotlight typically works with a stable of regular columnists who write on topics that match our editorial charter, such as education, healthcare, energy, environmental issues, and state politics and policy. If you are interested in joining our staff of columnists contact John Mooney.


NJ Spotlight is always interested in reviewing op-ed submissions for possible publication. In fact, several of our regular columnists started out this way.

We welcome submissions from across the entire political spectrum and are just as interested in seeing work from private individuals as from policymakers. Please send submissions to info@njspotlight.com or contact Maire Crowe or John Mooney.

Interns and other contributors

We’re always looking to build our editorial team and we do have an intership program. Please contact John Mooney to learn more about how to get involved with NJ Spotlight.
