We are seeking story ideas and confirming story assignments for the upcoming Spring + Summer issue of Midwest YOGA + Life magazine, due out April 1st.
The theme of the issue is HARMONY — and will also be the conference issue.
Think of this in terms of how we as individuals, the community, and our world can perceive HARMONY. Think of physical, metaphysical, mental, etc.
Please pitch to the theme, and keep your ideas seasonally appropriate, if that matters, for the article.
DEADLINE for print pitches: Friday, October 13th at noon.
We pay $25 for all published articles.
Articles will be assigned around November 1st
Deadline for articles will be November 30th at noon
We would love to hear any ideas you have! We especially want pitches from marginalized voices highlighting the BIPOC and LGBTQA+ communities.
Please pitch to the following sections:
-Spotlight (teachers, studios, influencers)
-Lifestyle (music, books, art, travel, community)
-Yoga + Movement (asana, movement, business, philosophy, meditation, karma)
-Health + Wellness (therapeutics, psychology, inspiration, mental health, Ayurveda, nutrition, recipes, food)
– Hotdish (quirky, midwest inspired stories … feel free to use plenty of midwest slang!)
PRIORITY will be given to submissions that will have images or artwork to accompany them.
***IMPORTANT: we can not accept images from royalty-free sites such as Pixabay or Pexels because a print magazine with our distribution size does not meet their royalty free requirements. Images must be your own work, or work that you have permission to use.
– Please send a separate email for each pitch idea you are sending
hello at mnyogalife
– Please remember this is a pitch, do not send fully written articles.
– DO NOT SEND ATTACHMENTS.
– Pitches should be for new, never published work, and should NOT be published on your own blog etc. before the print issue comes out
Thank you we look forward to seeing your story ideas!
