Why write for Peaceful Dumpling?
As an interdisciplinary online magazine covering sustainable lifestyle, news, and literature, Peaceful Dumpling provides a wonderfully supportive community and a great platform for your work. Our contributors are a diverse group of professionals in the field of writing, publishing, environment, activism, lifestyle and wellness.
Understand our content.
Please take the time to get to know our content, especially the topics that we cover, format, and our general prose style. Most of our articles fall into one of 3 types:
Our mission is to keep the message positive, informative, and encouraging for all our readers (both vegan and non-vegan), so we do not publish articles like “How to Defend Veganism/Why I’m Vegan.”
Email your article to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please insert the article text in the body of the email and attach photos (if any) in JPEG format. Recipe submissions must have original photos (your own) attached. Other types of articles may use a royalty-free, license-cleared images from either Wikipedia Commons, Flickr Creative Commons, or similar. The images should be no smaller than 425 x 400 px and must have the photo credit listed (ie. “Photo: Jellybelly via Flickr” or “Photo: Jennifer Brown”).
In the body of the email, please also include your author bio (2-4 sentences about yourself, including social media platforms) and an author photo.
Short story: We prefer stories to be under 6,000 words although we may consider longer stories if they are especially compelling.
Poetry: Please send up to 5 poems at a time. There is no word limit.
Creative nonfiction: We look for a variety of personal, cultural, or interdisciplinary essays of up to 6,000 words (longer works that are exceptional will also be considered).
Investigative journalism: This may be sent on spec or as a pitch. We are looking for deeply researched, compelling narratives on topics that are either extremely timely and relevant, or have not been discussed as much as their significance would demand. If sending as a pitch, please include links to writing clips.
