Guidelines for Writers

Capper’s Farmer is a nationally distributed quarterly magazine. Capper’s Farmer updates the tried-and-true methods your grandparents used for cooking, crafting, gardening, and so much more. If you’re interested in and/or experienced in all things rural, and you’d like to write for us, please send an email, with ARTICLE QUERY in the subject line, to Traci Smith, at tsmith@cappersfarmer.com. If your submission fits Capper’s Farmer style and your query is accepted, you will be contacted regarding the article assignment.

NO unsolicited manuscripts will be accepted; authors must query first. We only accept email queries, which must include “Query” and the subject of your query in the subject line. Include full name, address, and phone number.

Articles are assigned; no editorial calendar is published. An excellent way to have a first article published in Capper’s Farmer is to become a member of the Capper’s Farmer blogging team. Contact Allison Sarkesian via e-mail, asarkesian@ogdenpubs.com for more information.

The author agrees not to publish the work in any other media for a period ending one year after the date of the issue in which the work initially appears.
