Hi, potential Soul & Spirit writer! Please be informed by these guidelines before emailing pitches to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to write editorial for print
Our print cycles start roughly at the beginning of the month but for two following issues. So, for example, for February’s issue we needed content by 1st December. For March’s issue, we needed last-minute pitches/content by 1st of Jan. And so on (and always slightly earlier is better). At the time of publishing these guidelines (end of Feb), we are looking at May, June and July content.
What sort of content are we looking for?
Please pitch ideas about what spiritual things YOU want to write about, don’t wait for us to invite you! In your first email please specify which of our unique selling points you are an expert on or want to give comment on; fairies? psychic skills? moonology? a special mode of healing? What do you want to say about this specific subject? What’s new or what’s happening in its niche world at the moment that we should know about it? What’s the reader learning here? What’s your angle?
Then, when you know the answers to those questions, please give us some feature ideas (it’s ok if these are rough and not fleshed out). Package your expertise nicely into a written masterclass or story for our readers.
Think about the issue you’re pitching for. What time of year or season is it? Let our regular campaigns such as Psychic September, white witch and pagan festivals, etc inform you. Our minimum word count will be 500 up to approx 1200.
If you’ve got a portfolio or Instagram handle, please link these here so we can gain some context. Your spiritual profile is important, as it gives us a vibe as to how you’ll approach the features you write. Have fun!
Want to publish a poem?
That’s editorial. Send your poetry to email@example.com on an email. It’s the same email address if you wanted to write us a letter telling us you adored a feature – or had a comment you’d like to make about a feature – and same again if you had a question for one of our experts, gurus and life coaches. Or just email us and say hi, we love hearing from our readers all around the world!
Want to advertise a course, event or service?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01206 505944 the details of what you want to go in the magazine and she’ll recommend the best way to progress. We’re a family here at Soul & Spirit, and all of our clients are well looked-after and supported with editorial mentions.
I’m not based in the UK, but I want to contribute somehow. What do I do?
As we said above, we’re very happy to hear from you. Are you familiar with Soul & Spirit, can you read us online or subscribe first so you know what we’re about? Then, please email us following the guidelines above and tell us where you’re from and what you’d like to write about. We could commission you for online!
