We’re now soliciting articles for the Jan/Feb edition of iPhone Life magazine (hitting the newsstands in mid-December). Please use our article submission form to propose an article, and I’ll get back to you promptly.
Article Length and Deadline for submission:
Most articles run 1-2 pages (roughly 600-1200 words with images), and they must be submitted to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible (the issue deadline is October 24th). Note that you should submit a proposal first; this helps us eliminate duplicates and make sure the articles are a good fit for the issue.
Please understand that we don't pay for submissions, but your bio will accompany every article. The Jan/Feb issue is one of our most popular issues, as it goes right through the holiday season and will be distributed at CES 2012 (the yearly Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas).
