Want to Write for MB Magazine?
We’re always looking for writers who have a story to share. If you’re interested in submitting content, please read our submission guidelines below. You can submit your story at the end of our guidelines.
Our editors are interested in query letters or finished pieces on concrete topics written by emerging and experienced writers in all genres. We are looking for a clear takeaway for our MB Magazine readers: What can they learn from this piece? How will it improve their lives?
If you are submitting an outline of your story idea please include an estimated word count, a brief description of your background, and details of the imagery (are you submitting original photos that you took yourself? Did a photographer consent to having the photos published? Do you need stock images?).
If you are submitting your finished and previously unpublished piece, please also submit photos along with photo credits. If you don’t have photos please note this as well.
What We Love
We are interested in how-to stories, narrative essays, and profiles of inspirational people. Your story should fall in one of our editorial highlights:
- Health and Healing (fitness, physical wellness, mental wellness, cooking, etc)
- Style & Grace (fashion, grooming, beauty, etc)
- Money & Finance
- Lifestyle (our broadest category may be anything not listed above including travel, home & decor)
Get Familiar With Our Magazine
We are not interested in pieces that have been previously published online or in print. For personal essays, we prefer writers to attach or paste the finished piece in their query email. We do not accept material that has been previously published in any form in print or online.
Article lengths vary widely from 300 to 4,000 words. On occasion, longer articles and excerpts also appear in the magazine. A sweet spot for length is between 400-600 words for editorial pitches and 600-900 words for personal essays.
Not A Writer But Have A Story to Tell?
Please send your full story with as much detail as possible. If we are interested, one of our editors will reach out to work with you on publishing your story.
