SEEN is seeking contributors based in Metro Detroit to write about people, businesses, food, fashion, entertainment, health and wellness, and home.
If you are interested in writing for our print magazine, please contact our editor and send 3 – 4 writing samples to editor@seenthemagazine.com. Compensation is determined based on the length of the story. 
Digital contributors are not monetarily compensated at this time. However, they receive exposure on seenthemagazine.com and SEEN’s social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. Contributors will also be able to include a bio at the end of their piece that can link to a personal website, business, book and/or personal social media platforms.
All submitted posts must be original content written exclusively for SEEN. Contributors have the option to publish their post on their personal site five days after it is published on seenthemagazine.com. The post must indicate that the piece originally ran on seenthemagazine.com and include a link to the original post on seenthemagazine.com.
Word Count: The word count range is 700-1,000 words. The word count can be lower for recipes and fashion stories.
Photos: All photos must be high resolution, include captions and include who took the photos. If you are submitting a photo you did not take, you must have the photographers written consent to publish it on SEEN Magazine for free. Otherwise, photos must be royalty-free.
