1. Your story idea or ideas, related to history or biography. Summarize each idea in 300 words or less; send a maximum of five ideas per message.

2. A sample of your best writing – 300 words max. This can be a 300-word section of one piece, or short sections from several articles coming to a total of 300 words.

We are primarily interested in pieces in the range of 2,000 to 5,000 words. We accept only a few of the ideas we receive. We’ll try our best to say “yes” or “no” within 30 working days.

We pay $100 per article upon acceptance of the piece. We apologize for this low amount – we realize it isn’t nearly what you’re worth, but it’s the extent of our budget right now. We can offer global exposure for you and your work.
