Writers Guidlines

ABILITY Magazine accepts editorial submissions and article queries from freelance writers. However, because our editorial budget is allocated to staff writers, and due to the large volume of unsolicited submissions we receive, we do not offer monetary compensation. If your work is published, you will receive byline credit at the conclusion of the article, listing as a contributing editor within the masthead (space permitting) and eight complimentary copies, with a reduced purchase rate for additional copies.

General editorial subjects included in ABILITY Magazine are Humor Therapy, Headlines, Legislation, Health/ Medical Updates and Advancements, Sports, Assistive Technology, Human Interest, Diversity Employment, Housing/Universal Design for People with Disabilities, International Issues, Travel and Book Excerpts. Cartoons are also accepted. Queries/ articles not falling into one of the above categories are still accepted.

Word count may range from 500 to 4,000 words. ABILITY Magazine has the right to edit all work. All works should be submitted via e mail in MS Word .doc format or cut and pasted into email.

Images to accompany your article may be submitted upon acceptance of your article. Images should be high resolution (300dpi) and include captions. Images should be uploaded on the link abilitymag.wetransfer.com. Topic, captions, photo credit and name of writer should be included in “message” area of the transfer page. Transfer address to art department is prefilled.

Publishing of your article is never guaranteed and even accepted articles may be pulled or moved to a different issue at any time.

All work submitted to ABILITY Magazine must be original, non-published work. ABILITY Magazine will retain the rights to the editorial for six months from the date the issue is published and it cannot be sold or given to any other publication (print or online) during this time without approval from ABILITY Magazine. With expressed permission, excerpts may be used with a link to the original article.
