About Us

The first draft submission deadline is April 1st.

Rebuttal is the first debate-style publication at St. Olaf College. We offer students an opportunity to publish original work, read the work of peers, and challenge their beliefs.

Writers submit articles that argue for or against a specific question. The question can relate to any topic. Writers can invent their own questions, or answer our prompts. Writers can base their papers on class assignments or from their own, go-getting work. They can submit papers as a point/counterpoint set or as a single paper for the Board of Editors to refute. 

Papers chosen by the Board of Editors will appear in the next print and digital issues of Rebuttal. Submitting and publishing work is free. All final copies (print and digital) are also free.
