Write for Greener Pastures Magazine
What we are looking for
We (and our faithful dog, Aggie) are searching for previously unpublished humor pieces in any style (except for fake news/Onion pieces) within 100–700 words. We also run cartoons which have no minimum word criteria. Submissions that promote stereotypes, biases, or discrimination against a group/individual’s race, sexual orientation, or background will not be accepted — get with it.
To be added as a writer, when you feel your piece is ready, write the title of your piece in the subject line. If you believe your piece is “timely,” or something that is currently trending in the news, write (TIMELY) at the end.
Within the email, please use the following format:
[SHORT COVER LETTER/NICE WORDS]
[SHORT BIO — FOR FIRST TIME SUBMITTERS ONLY]
[TWITTER ACCOUNT] (if applicable)
Then, add a link to your Medium draft, and send it to email@example.com
For any reason you don’t hear from us within two weeks, please send a gentle reminder.
After you have been added as a writer you can submit pieces directly to us — please just submit one at a time. We love enthusiasm. Our inbox — not so much
Things to know
All our pieces are published behind the Medium paywall so our writers can be paid. To receive payment you need to join the Medium Payment Program, more information on how writers can be paid can be found here.
When your piece is published, you retain the rights to your work, as we may publish it on other social media platforms. For any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If your piece isn’t accepted, remember it isn’t personal, and that within Greener Pastures are people with feelings.
