Who We Are

DEBRA W. SOH – Columnist I hold a PhD in sexual neuroscience research from York University. I write a weekly column for Playboy.com and a monthly column for The Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper.

A Platform for Free Thought

At Quillette we respect ideas. Even dangerous ones. Our writers are a collection of individuals from across the political spectrum, with different life stories and backgrounds. We aim to bring our expertise together into one platform – to create an organic group committed to free thought. How to Submit We aim to provide a platform for original thought and quality cultural criticism. We will feature writing from non-journalists including scientists and artists, and will strive to give writers freedom to take risks and express controversial ideas. But we can’t do it alone, we need you, the reader, to join us. At Quillette, we believe this is achieved through story. If you have a story to tell, that is original and exciting, please send it through to claire@ec2-54-165-31-57.compute-1.amazonaws.com, or use the below contact form, and it will be considered for publication. It may be a personal narrative, a scientific hypothesis, an opinion piece, or investigative journalism. The best pieces will be chosen and featured on Quillette on a weekly basis. – Claire Lehmann, Editor in Chief     …
