Please send your submission for Empty Nest as an attachment to an email, or send the text in the body of an email. Use the following address:
Please double-space your manuscript, and designate it as a Department or a Feature. Include only one submission per email, please!
Please limit the length of your feature article to 1500 - 3000 words. Queries are welcome! Articles should be investigative, with some reflection, although insightful essays will also be considered. Interviews with interesting empty nesters are a plus! In your article, please include links to other websites, books, and generally useful information.
Please limit the length of your department article to 750 - 1000 words. Queries are welcome! Regular departments include Mind, Body, Money, Culture (theater, films, books), and Family. We really prefer investigative articles in these area, but we'll also consider essays. If you have ideas for additional departments, send them along, as well—we're open to new ideas! Please include links to other sites.
When you send an article for consideration, please include a short biography of yourself and low-resolution photos. Please note that all submissions accepted for publication are subject to minor editing and will be formatted to fit the magazine's standard design and layout styles.
You can expect a response to your submission within 6 to 8 weeks. Please do not send a follow-up email any sooner!
Finally, there is no payment for submissions—yet. Stick with us now, though, and maybe you’ll see a paycheck eventually for your accepted work! Thanks for your interest in Empty Nest...
