Rights: Seasoned Cooking retains reprinting rights on any work that is published.
Needs: Seasoned Cooking is interested in a wide variety of lifestyle-oriented articles. Our main focus is cooking and presenting creative and delicious recipes, but we also publish material on health & fitness related issues, hobbies & crafts and other general lifestyle subjects.
Payment: Authors whose work is published in Seasoned Cooking retain the copyright to their work so that they can opt to seek additional publication elsewhere. In addition, many authors use columns and staff areas to highlight other endeavors (e.g. promoting their cookbooks, offering personalized advice, etc.). As always, I'm open to additional suggestions from potential writers -- I've been very impressed with some of the creative and exciting ideas that have been tossed around! Of course, in the end, most writers tell me that the biggest draw they have is the love they have for the subject and writing itself. They also tend to enjoy the very interactive nature of Seasoned Cooking and the great feedback they get from the readers.
How to Submit: Please submit work via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can either include submissions directly in the body of the message or as an attachment (plain text or microsoft word only, please).
Response Time: An initial response is generally made within a two week period.
Tips for Writers: My rules for writers are very simple. I set out a very consistent schedule and expect writers to stick to it. Apart from that, we all have fun. The general schedule is as follows:
1) On the 10th of the month, finished articles for the next month are due;
2) On the 20th of the month, any requested revisions are due and any graphics you want to provide (photos, illustrations, etc.) are also due (you can send them via email as *.jpg or *.gif OR send me hard copies via snail mail so I can scan them in).
That's it. After that, it's my job to make sure the issue is published on time and looks great. This isn't a really tough thing to do, but it is only for those who really enjoy what they do. I'm lucky to have a staff of writers who are dedicated and having a ball helping me publish Seasoned Cooking. If you think this also describes you, I'd love to hear from you!
