Become a Contributor

Thank you for your interest in contributing to our communities and publications! We enjoy getting to know homesteaders from every corner of the globe.

While we welcome all original pitches, we also keep our editors very busy managing our robust contributor network. To respect your time and theirs, we ask that you fill in the information below as completely as possible.

Our communities include Countryside (magazine and digital), Goat Journal (magazine and digital: Backyard Goats), Backyard Poultry (magazine and digital), and Backyard Beekeeping (digital).

Most story assignments fall within the 800-1400 word range. Compensation is based upon word count ranges, rather than individual word counts, all of which is discussed before assignments are agreed upon.

Please allow our editors 5-7 business days to reply to your inquiry.

Fields marked with * are required

Please provide links to samples of your work.
We want to hear about what YOU can offer us, from your own perspective. We have covered a lot through the years. Please, no beginner pitches.
