SPONSORSHIP IDEAS

CRAFTSMANSHIP Magazine is determined to remain free of charge, to allow as many people as possible to have access to our material. To do this, we are seeking an appropriate sponsor. If you or your company are dedicated to the principles of craftsmanship, and would like to support us and be listed in the magazine accordingly, please let us know.

STORY IDEAS

Chances are, you know of at least a few interesting, unsung craftsmen or craftswomen. If you think their skills are exceptional–and, better yet, if their personal stories seem remarkable–please tell us about them.  They might make wonderful profiles in our pages. If none come to mind, think about your most treasured possessions—an unusually comfortable pair of dress shoes, perhaps; a favorite hat, cooking pan, or pocket knife; or an old sewing machine that you inherited from your mother. These goods usually involve some craftsmanship that has stood the test of time for very interesting reasons. And that’s often a story worth tracking down.  We’d love to hear about these ideas, or any other issues related to craftsmanship, mastery, and the future of quality.

SUBMISSIONS

Most stories published in CRAFTSMANSHIP will range from lengths of 1,000 to 2,000 words, although each issue will include at least one major feature or profile of at least 5,000 words. Most of our subjects are extremely visual, so we will regularly feature photo essays, along with videos of our masters whenever possible.

Our stories will be edited according to normal journalistic standards, and include fact checking.  We pay market rates, with fees dependent on the level of reporting a story involves.

Submissions can be sent as a fully written article or, preferably, as a query summary of your idea.  Those in the form of a query must include links to other published material by the author.

Let us hear from you.
