How to Get Published in Spirituality & Health Magazine

Thank you for your interest in writing for Spirituality & Health: A Unity Publication. We value and encourage submissions, especially from our readers. Please let these writer submission guidelines help you prepare an article so your query and submission process will go smoothly.

Rather than sending an article that is already complete, first pitch your idea to the editors of the S&H magazine and website by emailing [email protected]. They can collaborate with you to make your article most interesting and helpful to S&H readers.

Completed articles are also acceptable. Email them as a Word doc attachment to [email protected]. We'll do our best to respond, even if we can't use the submission.

For more detail, see the Requirements section below.

Keep in Mind:

Most submissions end up on our website as digital articles. We have much more roomon our site than in the bimonthly print magazine.

A nice range for digital articles is 700-800 words. Features in the print magazine are two basic lengths: 1,100 or 1,600 words.

Tell us about yourself in your query. Our readers love to hear from experts. If you're an expert let us know.

Payment varies for the website and magazine. We pay upon acceptance. We buy only first rights, so please do not submit anything that has been previously published either in print or online.
