Submission Guidelines and Job Opportunities

Submissions:

Edible Brooklyn welcomes submissions, pitches and story ideas from authors, illustrators, photographers and the members of the community we cover, especially ideas that highlight what this city eats and drinks and why. Note that the print edition is published four times a year—with the themes Drinks (February), Innovation (May), Travel (September) and Holiday (November)—so pitch accordingly.

Send your pitch along with relevant examples of previous work to submissions [at] edible manhattan [dot] com. Confused by the email? Our team publishes both Edible Manhattan and Edible Brooklyn, so all submissions go to the same place. Our web rates are commensurate with experience.
