Editorial Department

We’re always interested in working with new contributors and their original story ideas. Queries should present a clear, original and compelling angle, not merely a topic or idea, and should reflect familiarity with Paddling Magazine’s content and tone. Tell us why this story matters to Paddling Magazine readers, and tell us where you think it might fit in the magazine. Please send queries and two or three relevant clips of your writing to [email protected]. Due to the high number of submissions we receive, we can not respond to each and every query. If interested in your story, we will respond within six to eight weeks.
