Write for PLY
Whether you’re a seasoned writer/designer or putting fingers to keyboard for the first time, we absolutely know you can write for PLY! We want real spinners, authentic voices, strong narratives, great stories, practical advice, passionate words.
Feel like you’re not the best writer in the world? We don’t care! It’s easy to help with writing but it’s not easy to find somebody that knows what you know. We want your voice, your story, your spinning. We want you. That’s right, our goal is to get as many voices in this magazine as possible.
Feel like you don’t know enough about a particular topic? We still want you. While it’s true that we have dense and heavy topics that require lots of knowledge and years of experience, we also have experimentation articles, learn as you go write-ups, spin it articles, spinner profiles, guild pieces, tip jar tips, and behind the curtains. There is something for each and every spinner (to both read and write!).
Each issue has a theme and everything in the issue relates to that theme. The mood board will explain the theme, give you some ideas of what we’re looking for, show you the color palette, and tell you the proposal due date and when you’ll hear a yes or no.
Won’t you write for us? Take a look at the proposal guidelines, and then propose! I promise we’ll do everything we can to make it an easy and gratifying experience. Plus, it pays and because we value the creative process, we only borrow the rights to your work. Twelve months after publication, the work reverts back to you and you’re free to do whatever you like with it.
