Freelance Submissions

Submission steps:

As a general policy, we cannot guarantee placement based on your abstract, and we approve submissions contingent upon space allowance. We also only include original content that hasn’t been published elsewhere, including websites and blogs.

First, write a short bio describing yourself, your writing, photography, illustrations and film style and why you wish to freelance for Heady Vermont. Also please let us know if you have been previously published and, if so, where. It is important for us to get a in-depth feel for your work.

If you are submitting photography, illustrations or film that has already been completed, it must have not been published elsewhere previously (including online).

If you have multiple ideas, please submit them in one submission.

Heady Media has a fund for BIPOC contributors. If you are a BIPOC writer or artist who would like to be considered for publication, please put “BIPOC fund” in the subject line of your pitch and we will prioritize your submission.

Writing Submissions

Submit your story ideas: this should include a 200 word abstract, any relevant website links and, if applicable, supporting sample photographs. Please do not send full articles: if we like your idea, we’ll commission it then.

Photography Submissions

Submit your photo essay/story ideas: this should include a 200 word abstract, any relevant website links and supporting sample photographs. Please do not shoot and submit new photo essays ahead of time: if we like your idea, we’ll commission it then.

Illustrations Submissions

Submit your illustration/art ideas: this should include a 200 word abstract, any relevant website links and supporting sample images. If you already have produced the work, please attach it along with a description of how it could be used/accompanying story ideas.
