American Heritage magazine accepts unsolicited proposals from established freelance writers for features and some departments. The following submission form and guidelines have been developed to allow you to provide all of the basic information we need to make an initial determination about your proposal and about you as a writer.
All unsolicited proposals are sent to us on speculation. In sending a proposal to American Heritage Publishing, you understand that you are sending the information for consideration. This does not constitute an agreement to publish your work. Please do not send full manuscripts. If you have supporting material or clips of your previously published work available on-line, please include the URLs. If we decide to commission an article, the writer receives full payment on acceptance of the manuscript. If the article is found unsuitable, payment will not be issued, and American Heritage Publishing will revert all rights back to the author. Please use footnotes and annotations as necessary to aid our staff in assessing the accuracy of your article. All submissions should be on standard (8.5 x 11) typed, double-spaced pages or in electronic form via email.
