Mother Earth Living Lifestyle Submission Requirements
Would you like to be featured in Mother Earth Living magazine, or would you like to nominate someone you know? Mother Earth Living, a natural health and sustainable lifestyle magazine, is interested in sharing stories of people bringing the Mother Earth Living lifestyle to their communities—in their homes, gardens, careers, social and volunteer activities, and more.
Mother Earth Living accepts submissions for lifestyle profiles year-round. We typically schedule profiles approximately one year in advance, so please be aware that there will likely be a lengthy period between submission and potential acceptance and publication. We prefer entries submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org; you may also submit entries by mail: Jessica Kellner, Mother Earth Living magazine, 1503 SW 42nd St., Topeka KS 66609.
To submit yourself or someone you know to be featured in a Mother Earth Living lifestyle profile, please include the following information:
BASICS: Please include the name of the nominee, the names and ages of family/household members (spouse, children, pets, etc); the name of any associated businesses or organizations; and the location and size of the nominee’s home.
LIFESTYLE: What are the most interesting, naturally healthy and sustainable aspects of this person’s lifestyle? Perhaps she is a mom who raises her own goats and has a home-based business, someone who heads an herbal medicine educational center, a green-building enthusiast who shares her home and knowledge with the community or the leader of a children’s educational garden. Whatever the case may be, we’d love to learn how this nominee’s lifestyle contributes to a healthier home and family for herself and a better community and planet.
HOME: What are the healthy and sustainable aspects of this person’s home? From recycled décor and reclaimed building materials to green building techniques and alternative energy, we’d love to hear how this person’s home affects her and her family’s goals of living a naturally healthy and sustainable life.
HEALTH: The Mother Earth Living lifestyle is driven by a quest to make our homes and lives healthier for ourselves and the planet. What health-related aspects of this person’s life and home stand out? The ways in which we might promote the health of ourselves and our communities is vast and could include anything from educating ourselves on toxins in common furnishings to growing healthy food for our communities to running a city natural health center.
FOOD & GARDEN: Key elements of a healthy home and life, what we eat and grow are vital components of everyone’s lifestyle. Please include any relevant information on these topics.
PHOTOS: When submitting information for a lifestyle feature, photos are a necessity. SUBMISSIONS DO NOT REQUIRE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY. We need to get an idea of how we could portray this person’s lifestyle visually, but we realize many submissions will be submitted with amateur photography. Please include a handful of photos of the person’s home (ideally, one decent photo of every major room in the house—living room, kitchen/dining room, bedroom), a photograph of the person and his/her family, and any photos of relevant activities such as the garden, farm, at work, etc. If professional photography is available, please include all of it via email or link. If this person’s home or business has been published in other media, please include links to or PDFs of the article(s).
Thank you for your interest in Mother Earth Living magazine! We look forward to receiving your nominations.
