Electronic submission is strongly encouraged. Ideally, your article should be accompanied by detailed photos or drawings to illustrate the work. Cover photos are always required and many come from photographers other than our staff or from published stories in a particular issue. Unsolicited regular or feature articles, between 1500-2000 words pays roughly $150.00-$200.00, including photos (more on negotiation). Payment is usually made on publication. We do not make reprints. We always provide an issue of the magazine the article appears in. Articles that are solicited by the Editor usually pay more depending on difficulty and editing required.
