If you are interested in writing for us, please become familiar with our publication and know the type of articles we publish.
We Pay Writers
For your first submission, we do not want to see writing samples of previously published work, and we do not wish to approve a subject beforehand. Again, become familiar with our publication before making a submission. If we like your article, it will be published on one of two sites: Organic Lifestyle Magazine or Green Lifestyle Market.
We pay 10¢ per word with a cap of $150 and a bonus structure for performance. The initial per-word payment will be sent within 10 days of publishing the article. Bonus payments will be sent out within 10 days of each threshold being met.
- $50 for 5,000+ Social Shares
- $100 – 10,000+ Social Shares
- $200 – 50,000+ Social Shares
Article shares must be reached within six months of the date of publication for bonus eligibility. An author of an article with 1,500 words or more that gets 50,000 shares or more within six months of the article’s publication will receive a total of $500.
Shares can be seen at the top of each article adjacent to the social sharing buttons.
What kind of articles are we looking for? We’re picky. We typically publish in-depth articles that educate, the kind of articles our readers will share with friends and save to refer back to later.
Posts for submission should be at least 400 words. There is no maximum word count, though as mentioned, we only pay up to 1,500 words. (You will be paid the same for a 3,000-word article as a 1,500-word article, $150).
We do prefer longer in-depth articles that hold a reader’s interest, but we also publish shorter news articles.
Natural health and healing are major topics for both of our websites. We welcome doctors and other natural health care practitioners to write on the subject of natural health, but please know that we are very particular regarding health content. We recommend that anyone interested in writing for us, and especially anyone considering writing about health, to check out our “Foundational Articles.” Articles that promote remedies, cures, diet tips, and anything that could affect one’s health, must align with our magazine.
Other topics include, but are not limited to, agriculture, gardening, recipes (all recipes must be gluten and healthy, our readers love raw food and vegan recipes) human rights, animal rights, fitness, sustainability, off the grid, food, and environmental issues.
All content must be original (not previously published) unless you receive prior approval from us and are willing to forfeit payment.

What You Should Know
We edit! If the edit is extensive, we will ask you to review your article prior to publication.
Our editorial guide is the Chicago Manual of Style. Let’s just say this… we like the Oxford or serial comma, and if you leave it out, we’ll put it in. You could impress our editorial staff by putting them in yourself.
Links in Articles
Do not place links within the main body of your article. We do not want to push or pull readers to another website while they are reading our publication.
Links in Conclusion
You may add one or two links in your concluding paragraph to send traffic to your website (or any other website). All links must be relevant to the article and enhance or further the reading experience. If links in your conclusion read like spam, they will be removed or the article will be rejected. We may also add links and information in your conclusion as well. Please use smart links formatted as shown.
Please add a “Sources” section to the end of the article with all relevant sources, with the link styles shown in the image. List your sources with smart links as shown.
Bio and Social Media
We encourage you to write an informative and interesting bio and provide all of your social media links. If we accept your submission we will give you directions to set this up.
***BEFORE CONTACTING US***
Please carefully read this entire page before sending a query about writing for OLM. We will get back to all writers who follow our instructions, but we will no longer respond to those who do not. If no submission is attached, your query will be deleted.
