Send us your stories...

We seek short form (300-800 words) and long form (1,200-2,500 words) articles, preferably accompanied by appropriate photos sized at a minimum of 4×5” at 300 dpi. Contact us to pitch articles that exceed the word length above. Articles that transport readers to a pollinator rich habitat, delight us with charismatic fauna, or inform us how to improve habitat are also appreciated. We’re open to submissions on any topic related to pollinators and pollination, written for a lay audience. We also welcome articles on honey bees that emphasize the role of managing Apis mellifera conscientiously, helping beekeepers be good stewards of the land.

We purchase first-time print rights, pay upon publication, $100-150 for short form articles and $200-400 for long form. $400 is the maximum we currently pay for any piece. We do not pay extra for photos or sidebars that are part of the submission at this time, considering them as part of the article. We ask that authors refrain from posting the articles on personal websites for 6 months post publication. Send us a pitch.

We publish high quality photo essays about pollinators or endangered habitat. From wild bees to butterflies, we’re interested in the insects, birds, and animals that help feed the planet.

We purchase first-time print rights, paying contributors $200-400 for photo essays. We are always looking for cover images, for which we pay $150. You may send low resolution images in a pitch, but we require vertically oriented photos at 8.5×11” at 300 dpi for cover images and minimum of 4×5” at 300 dpi for article submissions. Send a pitch: editor@2millionblossoms.com.
