Submissions: Book Reviews, Writer and Artist Guidelines
Greenwoman Magazine is currently on indefinite hiatus. I am accepting submissions for my blog, Flora's Forum, and for the Greenwoman section in US Represented (an online magazine where I publish garden writing and art each week).
Thank you for your interest!
I'm looking for: Imaginative work in the areas of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and comics. New perspectives and original voices--funny, sad, smart, bawdy, angry, contemplative, weird, joyous, sexy; but most importantly, I am looking for compelling work. Writing that gets to the heart and intellect that underlies the pursuit of a gardening life. Writing that pushes the boundaries of garden writing and reflects what is going on in the garden in 21st century America.
About half of our content is personal stories, art, and fiction, and the other half is features. Almost every issue includes an article on 21st century gardening and environmental trends, a biography of an individual whose contribution in plant sciences, agriculture, gardening, or food knowledge has been not just notable, but great, and an interview with a writer or artist who uses the garden as a central theme in their work.
Submission Guidelines: All pieces should be 2,000 words or less; I will consider longer pieces, but the chances of having a longer work accepted diminish with length. Up to six poems may be submitted at a time. Please query first on all article ideas. Please do not send originals of your artwork or writing. Send pasted-into-e-mails copies only. Artwork and submissions sent to P. O. Box cannot be returned without proper postage. I’m always looking for artists who are skilled at drawing both plants and people.
Though I'd like to, I am currently unable to compensate contributors for any online work - Flora's Forum blog or US Represented.
Book/Periodical/Zine, etc. Reviews:
We are interested in everything that relates to the garden. We review books, magazines, and zines. We also do some blog reviews, but please only send us links to unusual and/or extremely well-written, original blogs on gardening–ones that delve into the interior life of the garden and gardener.
Send all submissions to: Greenwoman Magazine, Attn.: Sandra Knauf, P. O. Box 6587, Colorado Springs, CO 80934-6587. You can also send submissions and queries to my e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org . Please paste the submissions into the body of the e-mail, as I will not open files that are attached.
One more thing: We will gladly send you a PDF file, via e-mail, of a past issue so you can see what we do.
Thanks again for your interest, and I hope to hear from you soon!
