From the Up Here guidelines:

Prospective writers, photographers, and illustrators are encouraged to pitch ideas to the editorial team at Up Here magazine. A list of the upcoming issues is available in our Media Kit, but we also encourage pitches outside of those themes.

When pitching, writers should be familiar with Up Here magazine—the various departments and our style. Our Front of Book contains a Seen and Noted department, which are essentially first-hand accounts of northern experiences running 500 to 800 words. This is also where we reserve space for the Icebreaker, a profile of a Northerner making a meaningful or interesting contribution to their hometown or the North. (This generally involves a portrait photo and a 150-300 word story.) Other topics include stories about prominent northern families, food and drink, historical keepsakes, treasures or ephemera that tell about a place and time. Each month we also publish a column that shows off the colourful side of living in the North and a Last Word, recollecting unique and truly Northern moments and (often) struggles.

Keep lead times in mind when pitching features and featurettes. Longer pieces are planned far in advance and each issue is produced two months before its publication date, so keep this in mind if your story is time- or season-sensitive.
