Letters for publication should include the writer's name, address, and daytime phone number. Short letters are preferred, and all are subject to editing for length and clarity.

WRITERS' GUIDELINES

The best places for new writers to start with the magazine are the Perspective column, an opinionated 800-word essay on a timely local news topic, and Connections, a 650-word first-person essay on relationships of any kind (romantic as well as those between friends, siblings, and parents and children). The following are not open to freelance submissions: Your Week Ahead, On the Block, Cooking, Miss Conduct, Dinner With Cupid.

Freelance writers are required to sign the Globe’s freelance license agreement. We pay within 30 days of publication and cover reasonable expenses, which must be approved by an editor beforehand. Fees vary depending on the story length and the column for which the piece will be used. Stories are assigned weeks or months in advance of publication. Writers must check their stories for accuracy before submitting. All stories will be rigorously fact-checked by the magazine staff, and writers of feature-length pieces are required to submit fact-checking materials, from notes to referenced articles to tapes.

Please send queries by e-mail to magazine@globe.com and include the word “Query” in the subject line, or by mail to Veronica Chao, editor, The Boston Globe Magazine, PO Box 55819, Boston, MA 02205-5819.
