Redbook Submission Writers Guidelines



REDBOOK is targeted to women between the ages of 25 and 45 who define themselves as smart, capable, and happy with their lives. Many, but not all, of our readers are going through one of two key life transitions: single to married and married to mom. Each issue is a provocative mix of features geared to entertain and inform them, including:

■ News stories on contemporary issues that are relevant to the reader's life and experience, and explore the emotional ramifications of cultural and social change

■ First-person essays about dramatic pivotal moments in a woman's life

■ Marriage articles with an emphasis on strengthening the relationship

■ Short parenting features on how to deal with universal health and behavioral issues

■ Reporting on exciting trends in women's lives


Writers are advised to read at least the last six issues of the magazine (available in most libraries) to get a better understanding of appropriate subject matter and treatment. We prefer to see detailed queries rather than completed manuscripts, and suggest that you provide us with some ideas for sources/experts. Please enclose two or more samples of your writing, as well as a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Send queries to:
