Submission Guidelines for Writers and Photographers
About Us:Yankee Magazine covers the six New England states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Our Feature articles, as well as the departments of Home, Food, and Travel, reflect what is happening currently in the region. Writers interested in working with us should read several current issues of Yankee before querying us or sending an unsolicited manuscript.
Also read editor Mel Allen’s 5 Best, Surefire Ways to Break Into Yankee.
Stories or Queries:Yankee welcomes freelance submissions in the areas of home, travel, food, and non-fiction editorial. We are not currently accepting poetry, fiction, or cartoons. Both manuscripts and queries should include a small collection of clips of your other work. Manuscripts should additionally be accompanied with a short cover letter.
If submitting by the U.S. mail, please include a SASE with sufficient postage for both a reply and your materials to be returned to you. We reply as quickly as possible, but please allow at least five weeks. All material should be sent to the attention of Joe Bills.
Yankee buys all rights to stories it purchases. Payment is made on acceptance of the article by the assignment editor and with the writer’s submitted invoice.
