Submit an Article, Story or Photo to TNF

TNF welcomes contributions from writers, storytellers, farmers, scientists, growers of all sizes, conservationists, food justice activists, eaters, visionaries, and the like!  As long as the content relates to agriculture, food, or the land - TNF wants to hear from you. 

We prioritize publishing submissions from People of Color and/or about issues related to land and food justice and anti-racism and those applicable to growing in the Northeastern US.

TNF is published quarterly - as the seasons change. Each issue centers on a specific theme and always includes general technical and informative farming articles as well.

Receive TNF for free for one year (4 issues) if your submission is published. A $100 stipend is provided for submissions published as cover stories (there are two cover stories per issue). Articles are more likely to be published if they are submitted with high-quality images. 

TNF editors reserve the right to make minor changes to content for clarity, grammar, or length.  If editing that alters a submission's story is required, we will share the edited version with the author for approval before publication.  TNF reserves the right to use or not use images submitted with an article based on space limitations, image quality and content.
