From the Grit guidelines:

GRIT is a nationally distributed bi-monthly magazine with a circulation of approximately 150,000 through subscriptions and newsstand distribution. GRIT celebrates the intergenerational bonds among those who live on the land with spirit and style – a legacy of self-sufficiency, audacious ingenuity, and pragmatic problem-solving that gave this country its backbone and continues to shape its unique character.

DO NOT try to write for GRIT if you know nothing about rural life, gardening, or urban farming. We intend to be an authoritative and sometimes playful voice for rural lifestyle farmers and country or small-town dwellers, and we require our writers to be informed about that way of life.

NO unsolicited manuscripts will be accepted; authors must query first. We only accept email queries, which must include “Query” and the subject of your query in the subject line. Include full name, address and phone number. If a query is accepted, the author will be contacted regarding the article assignment. Send queries to

Articles are assigned; no editorial calendar is published. An excellent way to have a first article published in GRIT is to become a member of the GRIT blogging team. If this is something you're interested in, contact our blogging coordinator.
