It's just the two of us running this show. Between our families, homes, blogs and other projects, things can get a little crazy around here so we are always very thankful to have a few new creative minds to help us put issues together. We welcome writers from all backgrounds, weather you've been published before or are just a little gal with a neat idea like us!
What to Write About?
We cover the 1920's-1960's with topics such as:
fashion and beauty
sewing and crafts
cinema and old Hollywood celebrities
books, music and product reviews
small businesses, especially Etsians
your vintage home or room
cooking tips and recipes
travel and events
We are especially looking for people to write for our regular Hometown Vintage feature. Hometown Vintage explores shops, restaurants, entertainment spots or events with a vintage flair. See our current issue for an example and show us the great places in your hometown!
We do not require professional photos but please do send clear, large images with your article submissions. Photo sizes 800 pixels wide work best. If you do use a professional photographer, please include the name of the photographer with permission to publish with your submission.
We also accept photo submissions for our spread on reader outfits. There are so many pinup and rockabilly magazines out there so we really try to focus on authentic vintage living. We look for outfit photos featuring 20s-60's fashion and your fabulous home decor finds, accessories and things of that nature. Due to a flood of pinup photos, we don't publish pinups at this time.
Credit and Links
To ensure that we credit your name to your preferences, please include that information with your submission, along with a link to your blog, business or website if you have one. All contributors get a free 225 by 275 pixel ad space in the issue that they contribute to. If you have an ad button, please send that along as well. If you need help creating an ad button, please contact Brittany at firstname.lastname@example.org subject line "button help"
