About Wildlife Enthusiast Magazine
Wildlife Enthusiast is an innovative digital publication that provides a platform for connecting women of all ages and walks of life, so they can share stories and other information about hunting, fishing, and spending time in the great outdoors. Our mission is to amplify the voices of women who are passionate about preserving wild animals and wild spaces through conservation efforts that provide enjoyment for future generations.
As North America’s leading digital magazine for women who love hunting, fishing, and the great outdoors, we expect our contributing writers to be experts in their fields. Therefore, all articles should provide reliable information, and the content must be original. In terms of length, most stories run from 700 to 900 words, while longer, more in-depth features may total more than 2,000 words. Our featured topics include:
- Big Game Hunting
- Small Game Hunting
- Bird Hunting
- Freshwater Fishing
- Saltwater Fishing
- Wildlife Conservation
- Profiles & Interviews
- Products & Services
Writing Style & Standards
We encourage our contributing writers to tell interesting stories about the great outdoors in a casual style. Whenever possible, make your article fun, engaging, and playful, unless a more serious, educational approach seems more appropriate for your chosen topic. We follow the Chicago Manual of Style as our guide for writing standards, and we reserve the right to edit all article submissions for clarity, accuracy, consistency, grammar, and punctuation.
Since we update the WildlifeEnthusiast.com site several times per week with new content in a variety of categories, we don’t publish an editorial calendar.
All photos submitted with an article should either be the property of the submitter or have been purchased from a stock photo source. Each image should be in landscape/horizontal mode, as large as possible (a minimum of 960 x 640 pixels), and the resolution should be at least 72 DPI. The overall image quality, sharpness, and composition are equally important.
We request that Wildlife Enthusiast retain all rights to each contributed article, so that Google and the other search engines don’t see replicated content on other websites (which can cause those pieces to be de-emphasized in—or completely removed from—search engine results).
With each article published, we will include a byline for the author, a brief bio, and links to her/his website and social media feeds.
Because Wildlife Enthusiast is a free digital magazine with limited resources, we unfortunately cannot afford to pay for contributed editorial at this time. We will, however, do our very best to promote all published pieces not only on our website, but through our social media channels as well.
