Plant Healer Call For Writers: U.S. & International

Posted Aug 26 2012 3:30pm


(Herbalist, Wildcrafter, Grower, Activist…)

Plant Healer Magazine – the “magazine different” – is calling for new writers with new perspectives and a deeply personal and powerful style… on subjects related to herbalism and herbal related arts and culture.  We have a cadre of awesome authors contributing to create each over-250 page long issue, but we’re still always open to something new!  And you do not need to be well-known or previously published to be considered.  You only need to be speaking from your experience, on topics for which you have the most passion and interest.


Articles From Outside the U.S. & American Culture Sought

We’re especially desirous of English language articles by writers from all over the world.  Please consider writing about the important herbalists, herbal history and traditions of your region or country.


Length & Requirements:

The main requirement is that your article be original and previously UNpublished online or in print.  Diverse voices and styles are welcomed, from professional and academic to folksy and even cheeky!  We accept submissions from 2,000 to 4,000 words in length, and sometimes even longer when the subject matter requires it.


Departments To Submit For:

  • Traditions in Focus: Exploring Western Folk Medicine
  • The Primordium: Field Botany
  • The Allies: Plant Profiles & Monographs
  • Constitutional Approaches & Herbal Energetics
  • Seeing Folks: Case Studies & Therapeutics
