Fall 2020 Call for Submissions

For the first Fall issue of Farmer-ish, think all things Fall–pumpkins, apples, harvest, trees, leaves, preserving, pies, sweaters, and the like! We are looking for essays, how-to pieces, recipes, poetry, and more that celebrate the Fall season when the light fades and the trees put on a spectacular show for us.

As always, be sure to follow our general submission guidelines, but as you think about pitches and submissions for our Fall 2020 issue, please consider the following: We are still looking for great poetry; we love submissions from first-time authors, though we are thankful for our more experienced authors and authors with agents who help us build our ethos; we could really use some good fall recipe ideas (and bonus if you have a kid-friendly recipe for squashes, as this is so needed here at Sands End Farm); animal essays should be related to farm animals in some way (chickens, ducks, goats, cows, horses, turkeys, livestock guardian dogs, etc.), but we are super interested in how-to essays related to getting started with goats.

We pay $25 for most pieces but can pay $50 for some longer or more work-intensive pieces, such as farmer profiles.

The deadline for pitches for our Fall issue is August 25, 2020. The deadline for submissions is September 5, 2020. Be sure to put your text in the body of an email to farmerish.journal@gmail.com. Please put your working title and “Fall 2020” in your subject line.

Happy writing!
