Wonderground opens for submissions twice per year. Below are some notes on what we look for in a piece of writing, and information on how to submit a pitch.

Wonderground publishes stories that resonate beyond aesthetics or quick opinion. It’s not a place for dogmatism and right/wrong, but for questions and curiosity and openness to holding multiple perspectives. We’re interested in stories that come from the heart, and ideas that grow from experience and deep thought.

We suggest to all who submit that they read the most recent issues of Wonderground to acquaint themselves with material we publish. Subscriptions are available here.

Wonderground is: Curious, honest, smart, accessible, provocative, generous, irreverent, warm, unpretentious.

Wonderground isn’t: Divisive, pretentious, obvious, dogmatic, pretty self-indulgent.
