Submit A List

We are always on the lookout for new submissions for the site. If you have written an original list and want to see it on the front page of Listverse, this is the place to send it!

Please note that we are not accepting lists on the following subjects: sports, gaming, health or dietary advice, self-help, travel guides or tips, and technology recommendations. We also rarely accept lists of movies, TV shows, or pop culture unless they have a seriously interesting twist. See the link to our author’s guide below for more information.

We pay $100 for lists! Read more here. Give us your PayPal address for payment and tell us about yourself in the author blurb field—include your social media account if you want to promote it.

We can only accept lists from writers with PayPal accounts. We do not offer any other forms of payment.

We only accept submissions written with the highest standard of English.
