Interested in contributing content to Driftless? Know of an incredible small business that would make a great feature? Have a seasonal recipe you just can’t get enough of? Just got back from an unbelievable adventure? Let us know – we would love to hear more!

Our content is based on contributions from our readers, and we highly value the interest and expertise that local stories bring to the table. When accepting submissions for print, we are looking for content based around Midwest America. Our definition of the Midwest includes Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. 

Submissions for Issue 6 – Fall + Winter 2016 – are now open. In order to submit a feature for consideration, fill out our online form and submission fee of $12. Submissions will not be considered until the fee is paid. This submission fee helps support the cost of printing – Driftless is completely ad-free, and by paying the submission fee you help ensure we can continue printing physical copies of the magazine. You’ll also receive a complimentary issue for submitting.
*Any current yearly subscribers do not need to pay the submission fee. Please check your email for more details or subscribe here.

Any questions can be directed to with a subject line of "Issue 6 Submission Inquiry." We couldn't be more excited for this 2016 Fall + Winter issue, and look forward to seeing your work!
