If you’re a writer, photographer, or artist, and you feel that your work aligns with our vision, we would love to hear from you.

Written Work:

We’re looking for articles and personal essays between 500-1200 words. We aren’t into listicles or clickbait. We want thoughtful, original work that inspires people to get a little introspective. Something that fights against dwindling attention spans. Take a look at the content framework that we’re looking for:

  • Live Ardently (lifestyle): stories of people living out their purpose and finding their passion
  • Style (beauty + fashion): slow fashion, ethical brands, capsule wardrobes, eco-friendly makeup brands, DIY makeup recipes, natural haircare + skincare
  • Sustain (environmental efforts): conservation efforts, global environmental issues, zero/low waste lifestyle advice
  • Explore (travel): green tourism, mindfulness in travel, minimalist packing guides, travel recommendations
  • Nourish (food + wellness): mental health, holistic self-care practices, body positivity, the slow food movement, urban farming
  • Connect (relationships): creating meaningful relationships, giving back to the community

Send your work to Include a short bio, and the category (Live, Style, Sustain, Explore, Nourish, Connect) that fits your work. If your piece has been published elsewhere (including personal blogs), please send us a link to that as well.

Artists and photographers: email us with a link to your portfolio.
