Share Your Story

The Skinnie strives to provide high-quality content that is particularly interesting and relevant to you. Suggestions

from our readers are always welcome. If you wish to share an idea with us, please review the following guidelines.

​ARTICLE SUBMISSIONS

• TimingWe try to plan each issue 6-8 weeks in

advance. We recommend you contact us ahead of

time, especially if your idea is time-sensitive.

• Unique Content – Please inquire before investing

time and effort in your idea. It may be that we've

already published a similar story, or one has

appeared in another publication. If your article

pertains to an annual event that we've previously

featured, we may choose to not repeat ourselves.

• Feature Stories – We often receive press releases,

which present facts and data, but are unsuitable for a

magazine that publishes feature articles. We look for

personal stories that share a human element that make

such a story worth reading. That’s the meat.

Length – If your story idea is approved, we may

pursue it ourselves, or invite you to submit a finished

article approximately 1,000-1,500 words in length.

We are unable to publish book reviews or poetry.

• Less is More – "Economy of words" is our rule of thumb. Avoid wordy descriptions

and hyperbole, to create a clear and concise narrative conveyed in a linear manner.

• Editorial Approval – All articles are subject to an editing process. Please understand your story may not

be published exactly as it was written.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

PHOTOS AND ARTWORK

We welcome photographs and other graphics for use on our cover, to accompany articles, or for features such as Wild Things.
