Interested in writing for us?

Please send a pitch or query letter first, and we can work together to ensure it’s the right fit for the site. For more information about our readers, you can download Spiral Nature’s media kit here.

Show us why you’re the best person to write this piece. If you’ve written for other publications before, list them with links to samples to your work, or your personal blog. If you’ve never been published before, that’s ok too, just write a really amazing pitch.

We are especially excited to receive pitches from writers who are queer, trans, people of colour, and/or awesome.

Keep in mind that posts are scheduled months in advance, so if you have a great Samhain-related piece, please don’t wait until October 25th to tell us about it.
