WHAT WE PUBLISH ONLINE

We publish the following types of work online:

  • nonfiction in the form of blog posts, articles, profiles, features, reviews & essays up to 500 words
  • photography and art related to our mission
  • video essays

OUR CONTENT AND FOCUS

  • Our content is written for a general audience.
  • We do not publish scholarly articles or deeply political work.
  • Our goal is to provide readers inspiration and instruction for living the good life.
  • By that, we mean a simpler lifestyle centered on family, friends, home and neighborhood—a lifestyle of true freedom from the rat-race cycle of earn and spend. Among the principles we aim to teach are responsible consumption, ways for coping with commercial culture, and respect for and a deeper understanding of the natural world and our rightful place within it.
  • We do not preach environmentalism alone, but focus instead on:

•    the interconnectedness of all living organisms;
•    the economical and environmental benefits of recycling, reducing and reusing;
•    the practicality of supporting local economies and independent businesses;
•    conservation as a matter of faith and higher consciousness;
•    and agrarianism and domestic work as means of self-sufficiency.

WHAT WE PAY*

For work that appears in the online edition, we pay up to $15, depending on the availability of funds and our need for the material. We cover terms individually with contributors prior to publication.
