Guidelines for submitting to Brain Food Magazine:

  • We do not want recipes, restaurant reviews, nutritional/diet advice, event coverage or “I only ate deep-fried Kimchi for a month and this is what happened” experiences. If you can extract the greater social meaning behind those experiences, then get in touch.
  • Ensure your article is engaging and thought-provoking, avoiding technical or academic writing styles.
  • Create an eye-catching, thought-provoking title. Medium readers choose which stories to read, based on this single line of text. It’s the most important line in your entire article and success depends upon it.
  • Add a standfirst to your article. This is a few lines after the title which summarises the piece and draws the reader in. Read more info here.
  • Each piece must contain a high quality header image cropped landscape with a credited source (3:2 ratio, suggested 1800px wide x 1200px tall). Preferably something abstract, unusual, unique and not a traditional food photo. I recommend https://unsplash.com for free images.
  • Additional images throughout the text are preferable, especially if your article is over 600-800 words.
  • Use Medium’s seperators ( . . . ) between sections to create natural breaks in the flow of the text.
  • Use Medium’s quote feature to highlight important passages of text for the reader
  • If your work has already been published elsewhere such as on a personal blog, please credit this by adding “This article was originally published on *date* on *website*”
  • If I feel an article needs editing before publishing, we will send feedback via private notes.
  • Titles need to be formatted In Capital Case.
  • Ensure your profile is complete with a good quality profile picture.
  • You always retain the copyright of your work.
