Thank you for your interest in writing for Animal Wellness. As the Number One natural pet magazine in North America, we take pride in providing our readers with the information they need to make wise health care choices for their dogs and cats. Our publication embraces the entire holistic spectrum, from physical health issues to the emotional and spiritual well being of our animals.
We welcome unsolicited articles and story outlines. Articles may range in length from 500 to 1,500 words. If you submit an outline for an article, please also include samples of your work. We especially encourage submissions for our Animal Passages, Warm & Fuzzy, and Tail End columns, but welcome other articles as well, as long as they focus on holistic healing, whether physical, emotional or spiritual.
Before submitting to Animal Wellness, we ask that you familiarize yourself with our publication so that you have a strong sense of the type of articles we publish. Consider topics you know well and/or that will offer special interest and appeal to our readers. Please ensure that any health facts or statistics that might appear in your article are accurate and come from an accredited source.
Please do not send multiple submissions (articles that have been sent to more than one publication) unless you have received confirmation that the story will not be used by another magazine. Although we prefer to use original material only, we do sometimes publish book excerpts. Do not, however, send book-length manuscripts.
You may submit articles either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or on disc to Animal Wellness Magazine, 160 Charlotte St. Unit 202. Peterborough, ON, Canada K9J 2T8. Be sure to include your name, address, phone number, FAX number and/or e-mail address on your manuscript. A brief biographical sketch of yourself is also recommended. If you are sending your submission by regular mail, please keep a copy for your own files.
Photographs, where applicable, are also encouraged. They may be submitted either digitally (we require original images – not scanned-in photos — at least 3”x5” at 300dpi) or as prints (not color photocopies) along with your manuscript. It is advised that you keep copies of your images. We pay for unlimited rights only.
