The Harvard Political Review is a quarterly, nonpartisan political journal and dynamic online platform produced entirely by undergraduates. We welcome all Harvard College students, regardless of concentration, level of experience, or political leaning.
There are a number of ways to contribute to the Harvard Political Review. We are always seeking new staff writers and contributors for our print publication and online content streams. Please direct inquiries about the Editorial Board to Editor-in-Chief Daniel Backman.
In addition to writing, members with design and web savvy can contribute to the magazine by joining the Publishing Board. For those who are financially inclined, the Business Board offers a creative, hands-on opportunity to gain experience in sales, circulation, and advertising. Contact Publisher Olivia Zhu and Business Manager John Acton for more information.
