If You Have A Small Business And Want To Advertise By Writing For Us

If you have a business related to something in the field of growing food, you too can write for our magazine. We will allow TWO Links to your website or other social media page.

We will also allow one half to full page advertisement of your project or business. 8 x 11 is usually a good size, no less than 300 DPI. If you have a flyer we can advertise this for you as well but the flyer needs to be clear looking for magazine quality. This is how we pay our writers for their time – we swap advertising space for good articles and business promotions.

Please don’t write an article that sounds like a sales pitch, as it will not be published in the magazine. Make your article interesting and informative for our readers. Please view your article as an educational source and something people want to learn from.

About The Magazine Articles

man_sitting_at_desk

The ASC Magazine receives requests all the time from people wanting US to write their stories for them. Their idea is to hand us a few pics and we write up the story; well that’s not exactly how we work and there is a very good reason why.

One of the biggest complaints we have heard from business about magazine and newspaper articles being written are “my comments were taken out of context” or “I don’t remember saying that in the article.” We believe your story should be read exactly as you want people to see it and why writing the article yourself is very important. The only thing we do is correct grammar and possibly sentence structure, otherwise it’s all your article.

We can write your story for you, but it will not have the same passion as you will be able to tell your story nor will you get your point across the way you wanted it made. It’s YOUR passion and loving what you’re doing, is what we seek in the magazine. It’s also what our readers have come to expect. We use many white paper university studies in the magazine along with homegrown ideas. The readers love it and we receive compliments all the time from people. The magazine was founded on people, growing food, backyard tinkering and college white paper reports.

The ASC Magazine is dedicated to introducing new growers, farmers and aquapons to other members of YOUR local communities. It is about putting YOU in the spotlight and that’s what makes us unique and different. By writing your story you are showing communities what is possible and how others can have the same results. People can learn from your highs and lows. Each person who writes their story becomes an educator for beginners to learn from. That’s pretty impressive if you ask us!

Our magazine is also about science, university studies, technology and white papers. This is why we have decided to also become a trade publication so teachers and students can share articles with us. We believe in giving people a well rounded view of all perspectives in growing, learning and teaching. So if you have a white paper on agriculture, aquaculture, horticulture, sustainability or animal husbandry you would like to share with the readers, then pass it along and we will publish it.

Write us an article about an experience YOU had with aquaponics, hydroponics, gardening, herbs, cooking, canning, raising animals, chickens and bees, creative ways to re-cycle, Co-Operatives, self-sufficiency, permaculture, wind turbines, solar panels, lighting, inventions, survival and anything else that can be of benefit to our community to learn about. Actually anything YOU feel can benefit the ASC readers. Our readers do write in and ask for certain stories so they too can learn.
