Have a story to tell?

We would like to know about it. Modern Conservationist welcomes unsolicited article submissions from conservationists working in the field. Have insider knowledge or insight into an important topic or issue? Know of a story no one else is telling? 

Send us a brief synopsis of the topic you are proposing (no more than 100 words); a few sentences describing who you are, your background and expertise, and why you should be the one to write this story; and whether or not you are able to provide original high-quality photos (at least 1,200 by 800 pixels and 72 dpi). Email these items to alexandra@modernconservationist.com with the subject line “Story Submission.”

Before pitching your idea, be sure to familiarize yourself with our focus (North American conservation) and mission (emphasis on “honest, holistic and nonpartisan perspective”), values, content and style as all stories must reflect these. You don’t have to be a professional writer to be considered, but great writing skills are definitely a plus.

As a small, independent startup, we are unable to provide compensation for submissions at this time but hope to be able to as we grow and gain support.
