Call for Papers...

PhilosophyTweet wants to promote philosophers and add more materials to the PhilosophyTweet library.

PhilosophyTweet will review and promote your paper, web page, article or book and suggest it for reading by Tweeting about it on PhilosophyTweet.

Online advertisers estimate PhilosophyTweet can charge $50 a tweet based on our intelligent followers.

Our followers seek wisdom not money.

Call for Papers:

A member of the PhilosophyTweet review panel will read your work in any medium and recommend it if it is well written and coherent.

PhilosophyTweet does not have to agree with the work. If our review panel finds your work of excellent quality we will publish an abstract of your work and post it on The PhilosophyTweet Blog.

The Abstract may contain a link to the work. PhilosophyTweet charges $100 to review a piece. We expect to approve most works but in some cases a publication maybe of too poor a quality to recommend to PhilosophyTweet's followers.

You do not have to be an academic philosopher or have excellent credentials for your work to be reviewed. In fact we encourage people from outside the academic community to submit their works. Artists, poets, novelists and writers are also encouraged to submit their works.
