Submitting Your Work to Seattle Magazine

Before submitting to Seattle Magazine

The Market List recommends you verify the market is active and accepting submissions before sending your manuscript via regular mail. You may verify a market status by either visiting their website, calling their listed phone number, or confirming via regular mail that the market is still active before sending them your work.

To be sure your submission is appropriate for this market, we recommend you familiarize yourself with Seattle Magazine by reading a sample issue before submitting.

If you have recently submitted to Seattle Magazine or have experience with this market, please submit a comment below. Recent submission response times are always welcome and helpful to other writers.

From the Seattle Magazine guidelines:

  • Always pitch an actual story idea. Sending an email that simply lets us know you're a freelance writer available to write doesn't really tell us a lot about you, such as what you're interested in writing and how you'd write it.

  • Actually read the magazine before you pitch. Get to know the regular columns and departments. In your pitch, explain where in the magazine you think your story would best fit. 

  • Highlight the trend in your story pitch. Keep in mind that cover stories usually tend to be reader service-oriented: Best Restaurants, 10 Great Northwest Getaways, Top Docs, etc. but we also like them to be trend-driven.

  • If pitching a travel story, only pitch regional travel stories.
