I got a Writers Digest alert about four open to freelance submissions. You’ll need to Google the magazines to find the URLs.
American Archaeology is a quarterly magazine published by the Archaeological Conservancy. This popular archaeology magazine pays $1,000-2,000 for nonfiction features. Writers should query with published clips.
Bow & Arrow Hunting is published 9 times per year. This hunting enthusiast magazine pays $250-450 for nonfiction articles. Writers are encouraged to submit a complete manuscript or query first.
Horticulture is the country’s oldest gardening magazine (and published by F+W Media, which owns WritersMarket.com). The bimonthly magazine pays $500 for nonfiction features and $250 for smaller pieces. Writers should query first.
Skin Deep is the official trade publication of Associated Skin Care Professionals. The bimonthly magazine pays $75-300 for assigned articles of 1,200-1,600 words. Writers should query first.
