The magazine is a country-oriented “how to” magazine that specializes in showing people how to build their own home, produce independent energy, grow their own food and make a living without being tied to a city. Related subject matter includes raising animals, country skills, recipes, home schooling and book reviews. Backwoods Home prints articles by people who actually do what they write about – research alone won’t cut it. Clear, straightforward writing similar to good newspaper writing is preferred. Payment ranges from $30 to $200 per article, payable upon acceptance rather than publication.
