STORIES WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

 

Editorial content in Geeked magazine and We Geeked This is intended to inform and motivate the reader by profiling new up-and-coming individuals, companies, organizations and events that are timely and socially relevant, as well as highlighting established role models and inspirational personalities. We look for articles that are engaging, well written with thoroughly researched content and up-to-date information. In articles that cover Travel and Food, writers should try to introduce their pieces as narratives – with anecdotes, quotations and a sense of story.

 

RATES AND SPECIFICS:

 

Please note that we are currently unable to pay writers or artists for their work but the media platforms in which their articles are reproduced/published will benefit them by showcasing their work to a wide audience.

Please submit a query pitching your idea before you send us a manuscript.

 

We encourage you to read past issues and articles posted on We Geeked This (www.wegeekedthis.com) and published on Geeked Magazine to get a feel for the style and focus of Geeked and We Geeked This.
