America is a smart, Catholic take on faith and culture, the leading Catholic weekly magazine in the United States. We accept unsolicited manuscripts for publication in print, web or digital formats. America articles examine the intersection of faith, social justice, and contemporary American life. The magazine’s coverage extends to the Church in the United States, U.S. politics and foreign affairs, arts and letters, popular spirituality and popular culture. An article in America is characterized by its general excellence, topicality, balance and originality. Articles often incorporate a Catholic perspective but need not do so directly.
The recipient of numerous awards, America has led the conversation about faith and culture in the U.S. for more than a century. Past contributors to America include popes and presidents, Nobel laureates, world-renown scholars, distinguished men and women of letters, as well as everyday professionals and students. America is published by the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits) of the United States.
