Article Submission Guidelines
At OM Yoga & Lifestyle Magazine we welcome new articles and ideas from all writers, bloggers and yoga enthusiasts. You do not need to have any formal writing experience, or have been published elsewhere, to write for the magazine.
Please note that whilst we cannot pay for external writing or photography, OM Yoga & Lifestyle Magazine prides itself on being a platform for yoga students, teachers and new writing/photography talent to showcase their work to a wider, international audience.
To this end, we are keen to support our writers/photographers by including name credits, websites etc. for readers to link directly to them. Many of our writers have enjoyed very positive and personal feedback from readers, and built their writing/photo portfolio in association with OM magazine.
Thank you for your interest in writing for us.
Please take time to familiarise yourself with OM magazine before approaching us to make sure you contact the correct person.
We receive a large number of editorial queries. All of those submitted are reviewed, however, as we are a very small team, it is not possible for us to respond to each and every single email. There is no need to send in a follow-up email as we will be in touch if interested in your article/idea.
