Our mission at The Stoic Within is to help spread the history and application of the ancient philosophy so that individuals of today can live their best lives and handle the adversities that come with it.
Each week, we provide new content dedicated to the current day application of Stoicism through articles posted here as well as through our email newsletter and social media channels (@stoicwithin).
Every Monday morning we send our Monday Meditations, a short, action-filled email designed to help teach the philosophy in bite-sized chunks and immediately apply those teachings to life.
If interested, click here and subscribe.
By signing up, we’ll send you our most popular posts as well as grant you access to our private Facebook group to discuss the meditation.
We hope to see and speak with you soon. (We respond to all who reply to our Monday Meditations).
Write for Us
We welcome article submissions.
To submit an article, please contact us at stoicwithin[at]gmail.com. (You’ll need to create a Medium account if you do not have one). We will then add you as a writer to the publication so that you can submit articles. NOTE: Do not hit “publish” but instead add the draft to the publication and hit “submit”.
We’re looking for original content that helps individuals better themselves through the philosophy of Stoicism. We accept both short and longform articles.
All submissions should have a title and subtitle.
Article must include a picture and must credit the individual to whom it belongs. Medium offers writers the ability to quickly add pictures to the platform. When the + icon appears for a paragraph, click it and that will reveal a magnifying glass. Click the magnifying glass and search for a photo.
Submissions should have relevant keywords in the title and subtitle as well as throughout the article.
Articles should be at least 900 words in length.
We work with writers to refine their piece. We retain the right for final edit on the piece but will include the writer in the final version prior to publishing the article. The writer retains the right to remove their article from the publication if they so choose.
Do not submit articles that have been published elsewhere on Medium. If you previously published them outside of Medium, please feel free to submit to this publication.
Please read and follow Medium’s Best Practices.
