We get that question a lot. Whether its via a phone call from a loyal subscriber, a comment left in a blog post at, or an email sent to an editor, there are lots of folks out there wondering how to get their work seen online or in print at Fine Woodworking magazine.

Article Submissions
Every week, our managing editor receives between ten and fifteen article submissions, each of which is thoroughly reviewed as a potential piece of content for Fine Woodworking magazine. While sometimes it's just a matter of making the right pitch at the right time, you can increase your chances of success by following a few simple guidelines.

Submitting an Article Proposal to Fine Woodworking:

  Summarize your topic in a few paragraphs that outline what you plan to cover
•  Include a paragraph on yourself and your woodworking background  
  Take care with your photos and visuals-they help us to understand your idea
  Include a self-addressed stamped envelope for us to return your material in

Once we've received your proposal, we'll send you a letter acknowledging its arrival. You'll hear from our editors again within a month or two, once we've come to a decision.
