We’re always open to submissions here at The Land Collective! Please send pitches or full submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to read our writer’s guidelines before submission: Submission Guidelines.
Submissions to The Land Collective are reviewed by our editors and normally undergo a two-part review process.
Initial Review: Our editors first review your submission for general content, organisation, and audience suitability. Sometimes we will ask that entire sections be cut or added, or the article split in two. That does not mean we don’t like the piece, but sometimes it means that that section that we know you worked hard on just won’t resonate with our audience.
Most submissions are returned to the author with suggestions for revision before the article is formally accepted. Please try to return initial content revisions within two weeks unless we tell you otherwise.
Copy Editing: Once formally accepted, your article will be edited for maximum readability and sent back to you for final approval. You will not get a tracked changes version from the copy editor, so be sure to read it thoroughly. Please understand that this is intended to be a learning process rather than a contentious one. Your copy edits may include questions, clarifications, or suggested additions, typically in Word comments. Sometimes it takes a few rounds of copy edits to get it right. Please return this document with any changes you make tracked for our editors.
Once we have copy-edited an article, we intend to publish it right away, so we will ask you to return your approval and final revisions within 48 hours.
Publication: Once it is accepted at the copy-edit level, your work will be scheduled for release and loaded onto the website. When it launches, we would appreciate it if you might help us showcase your work through all your social media channels!
