We will give you unprecedented access to our loyal and growing Facebook audience.

Every article you contribute will include a profile with your biographical information, credentials and links to your personal website. You will also be given a contributor landing page where people can learn more about your specialties and what you have to offer.

Why submit an article to Our Voice- The Magazine? Good Question!!

Well, for one your article will get great exposure! Your article has the potential to be viewed by thousands of unique visitors every month! That’s not too shabby if you want to get your article noticed. And of course, being published on the internet is an excellent way to jump-start a writing career. It gives you instant credibility and exposure. Next thing you know you will be writing an e-book!

But most importantly, your articles have the potential to help people. Just by sharing your expertise or personal experience, you have the ability impact other visitor’s lives. I have had many emails thanking me for sharing my experience and the knowledge that I have gained along the way. It is a worthy endeavor.

We publish essays, interviews, poetry and original works of artwork. We tend to favor personal writing, but we’re also looking for thought provoking, well-written essays on political, cultural, and philosophical themes in our community. Please, no journalistic features, academic works. Other than that, we’re open to just about anything. Surprise us; we often don’t know what we’ll like until we read it.

We’re willing to read previously published works.  We discourage simultaneous submissions. We rarely run anything longer than three hundred words. Don’t bother with a query letter, except perhaps on interviews; the subject matter isn’t as important to us as what you do with it.

We try to respond within three to six weeks. With nearly hundreds of submissions a month, however, our backlog of unread manuscripts is often substantial. Don’t let a longer wait surprise you.

Submissions should be typed, double-spaced.. (Poems may be single-spaced.) . Do not send your only copy. Do not submit work or queries by e-mail or fax. Submissions received this way will not be acknowledged.

Photography Submissions
Our Voice- The Magazine is interested in photographs of many kinds. We’re not looking for photojournalism, just unique perspectives on the world around us. When we accept a photograph, we keep a print of it on file until we find a place for it in the magazine.

We prefer that you submit traditional black-and-white prints. You may send prints of any size, though we find it easiest to review photographs that are between 4×5 and 11×17. Matte or gloss finish is acceptable; prints made on heavily textured paper, however, do not reproduce well.

If you are submitting digital images, send high-quality digital prints. (One image per page, please.) We cannot review images on screen. We cannot accept images via e-mail. If we accept your digital images for publication, we will request the image files on cd or dvd media (Mac or pc). Save your image files in uncompressed tiff grayscale at 300 dpi or higher.
Websites and promotional sheets with multiple photos per page will not be considered formal submissions. We cannot review color prints or slides.

We try to respond within three to four weeks. With nearly hundreds of photographs submitted a month, however, our backlog is often substantial. Don’t let a longer wait surprise you.

All submissions must be accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope or box for our response and the return of your photographs. Your work will not be returned without sufficient postage. Please include protective packaging to ensure your photographs’ safety in shipment.

Thank you for your interest in Our Voice – The Magazine.
