  • Keep stories between 500 and 1,500 words, saved in Microsoft Word format.
  • Submit original full-resolution photos, NOT the smaller thumbnail versions, as .JPEGS (.JPG) or .TIFF files.
  • Make sure to send a variety of photos to support your story (scenery, glassing, hiking, camping, live animal, harvest from different angles, etc.). The more pictures we have to work with when designing a story for the magazine, the better.
  • Send the first and last names of everyone in your group photos


You do not have to submit a story to be in our magazine!
