Our Writers

Our contributors are established writers, journalists and people from other fields who share their passion for particular books and authors. Since it is entirely independent, Slightly Foxed is free to follow its own bent, to promote unfashionable enthusiasms, to celebrate the offbeat and the unusual. Contributors are encouraged to discuss their chosen books with passion and wit, to air arcane knowledge, to delight in eccentricity and to share the joys of exploring the extraordinary, the little-known and the downright peculiar.

All of our writers are paid for their contributions and although most contributors are published and often well-known (P. D. James, Robert Macfarlane, Peter Oborne, Richard Ingrams, Michael Holroyd, Justin Marozzi, Penelope Lively, Emma Tennant, Richard Mabey, Sarah Perry and Margaret Drabble to name but a few) the editors also accept interesting reviews from the general public ‒ the only criteria being the quality of the writing.

Before you submit a piece for review, please first check our index and read our submission guidelines.
