From the Bee Culture guidelines:

Bee Culture has a constant demand for articles on bees and beekeeping, pollination and honey plants, garden and forest management for bees, and a wide variety of related topics. With over 100 pages for most issues, we generally run 15 – 16 articles, all averaging 1000-2000 words. About a third to half are submitted by outside writers.

Content: The best article is one that shows a keen awareness and knowledge of the subject material. Accuracy is important. Our readers have a strong bond with the magazine and place their trust in the information we present. Profiles of individuals or groups important to the industry or allies are welcome, especially if they endorse or support a cause or ideal other than the norm. Articles dealing with marketing honey or other hive products, or even how-to-sell skills, are excellent, especially if they are supported by successful personal experiences or interviews of those that are.

Ideally, your article should be accompanied by detailed photos or drawings to illustrate the work. Digital graphics are best, but prints and color transparencies that reproduce well are certainly accepted.
