The Cove is calling for your submissions throughout 2024!

Do you have some knowledge you want to share with the force? Have experiences that others might benefit from? Whether it's an essay, op-ed, a research article, a book review, or lessons-learned based on your own experiences, we want your submissions! It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned writer or just starting out, we welcome submissions from all levels of experience – The Cove is here to provide a platform for all individuals, regardless of rank or background, including non-Army members. As long as it related to the profession of arms, we want to publish your content.

Writing long-form articles isn't for you? You can make submissions in other forms of multimedia, such as a podcasts, audio articles, or even videos!

We are interested in topics that fall into any of our key study areas – Art & Science of War (ASW); Art & Science of Thinking (AST); Leadership, Ethics & Society (LES); Organisation, People, & Projects (OPP); and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). If it's about professional mastery within Army, then it's suitable for PME!

Units, Formations, Headquarters, and other branches: Are you planning PME activities such as seminars or conferences throughout the year that the rest of the force may benefit from viewing? Why not arrange to have your PME event livestreamed or recorded and published here on The Cove? Contact us at to discuss livestreaming and recording opportunities.
