Writing And Photography Submission Guidelines

Wine Enthusiast Magazine welcomes proposals from freelance writers on subjects that pertain to wine, fine food and travel. Full manuscripts on spec are discouraged. Proposals can be submitted via email or snail mail. A proposal only needs to be one or two paragraphs, but it should be accompanied by materials (a resume, curriculum vitae or clips) intended to convince the editors of the submitter’s qualifications to write that particular piece.

Submitters should be cautioned that Wine Enthusiast Magazine receives hundreds of proposals a year, and employs contributing editors in wine regions around the world who also propose story concepts. There is often a discernible overlap in specific proposals and general subject matter. At the same time, be assured that the editors will assign a story to the first qualified writer who proposes it.

You may also pitch story ideas for Wine Enthusiast Online. For example, ideas that you might have thought were too time-sensitive for a monthly magazine will now be considered. The editors will discuss all proposed story ideas internally, and decide whether the idea will work for the magazine, for the Web site or (we regret to inform you…) neither.

For efficiency’s sake, pitch the correct person(s). Note that only email addresses are included here. That’s because phone pitches are verboten.

For short, front-of-book items, write to Managing Editor, Joe Czerwinski.

For feature stories aimed at the Pairings department and short items for the back of book**, write to Managing Editor, Joe Czerwinski.

For Web items, write to Digital Editorial Manager Marina Vataj.

* Subject matter for the front of the magazine and the Web site includes global wine region news, particularly controversies and innovations; short profiles and Q&As; creative food and drink recipes; cool merchandise related to wine, food or travel; trend pieces using several wineries, restaurants, hotels or destinations as examples; statistics; notable quotes.

** Back of book stories (anywhere from 200 to 800 words) can fall into any of the following broad categories: How to Make the Most of your Day in: [city, region]; The Wine Trail (true travel tales and observations, profiles; arcane food and wine origins; unusual tasting rooms, museums, roadside attractions, restaurants and the arts in general; weird meals, recipes, customs; wine & culinary history; stories behind wine labels); Q & A (accent on celebrities); humor essay or light, funny op-ed; a chef and his/her favorite ingredient or recipe; quiz, puzzle, game.

If unsure who to pitch on a particular idea, please send via email to editor@wineenthusiast.net or mvataj@wineenthusiast.net or via postal mail to:

Managing Editor
333 North Bedford Road, Mt. Kisco, NY 10549

For queries regarding photography submissions, contact Creative Director Marco Turelli.
