Invoke Magazine publishes transformative writing by and for women. We’re here to express our love for life, and we invite you to join us. We welcome your creative ideas on a variety of topics that matter to conscious, creative women: world events, spiritual practice, social justice, self-care, sexuality, and much more.
We’re interested in many formats:
- first-person narrative
- how-to articles
- thoughtful journalistic reporting
- Q&As or two-way interviews
- profiles of interesting women
- opinion essays
- paintings and illustrations
- other creative ideas!
We also welcome submissions for our signature columns:
• Wisdom Series: A Q&A series with teachers/leaders, with wisdom as the guiding principle. Word count: 1,500-2,000 words.
• Nourish: Accessible, practical, and easy-to-implement ideas around nourishment, from a simple recipe to a homemade beauty balm. Word count: 300-600 words.
• Conscious Culture: Covering books, music, movies, and artists. We focus on sharing new finds, but we’re also open to obscure old gems. Word count: 200-400 words.
How to submit your idea: Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a paragraph describing who you are and what you’d like to write about. If it’s a good fit for Invoke, we’ll contact you to discuss your idea(s), story angle, word count, and timeframe.
How to submit your article: Email it to us as a Word doc (or paste it in the body of an email if you don’t have Word). Include a couple-sentence author bio (30-75 words) and a high-resolution photo of yourself. We welcome suggestions of related artwork or photography to include with your piece.
Our editing process: We aim to nurture creativity, collaboration, and high-quality craft, whether you’re new to publishing or an old pro. After initial brainstorming and writing, you’ll have the option of doing a feedback call with an Invoke editor to receive guidance and a sounding board—our way of connecting around the piece rather than simply critiquing it. After that, we’ll go through one to two rounds of editing and revising.
What we’re looking for:
• Articles that transform, uplift, shift, connect, and help readers discover new things.
• Courage, boldness, passion, and curiosity. Invoke is a call to love.
• Writing that is real, relatable, relevant, and grounded, with a little humor and lightness when appropriate.
• An attitude of wholeness. We believe we’re all whole as we are, and we attempt to see the world that way. We’re not here to fix you.
• Authentic voice. We write what we know, we don’t try to be something we’re not, and we don’t hide our own light to play it safe.
• Storytelling with a mission. Find and share stories women might not be hearing elsewhere, those that celebrate the feminine spirit and show different ways of being in the world.
