Our goal at Lake Time Magazine is to showcase the incredible talents and passions, culture, music and arts, recreation, businesses, and communities and to promote the area as a destination not to be missed!

We want to share the people's stories. Are you someone passionate about your craft, an advocate for an important social cause, an adventurer who doesn't shy away from any obstacle (including the weather), or a scientist, artist, foodie, etc? We want to hear from you!

Here's how:

What type of content can I submit?

Lake Time Magazine accepts all kinds of writing including (but not limited to) short stories, poems, recipes, events, articles, or pitches. We also accept photography for uses including (but not limited to) social media, newsletters, promotions, and last but not least... the prestigious Lake Time Magazine cover photograph!

Each submission may be considered for both web or print publication.

How do I submit?

If you are a photographer, please submit directly to us using the form to the right. If you have any questions please contact us at [email protected]. Once your submission is "pending" you'll soon gain access to the next phase of submission where you can upload individual photographs (because we know many of you may not have a website to submit).

What do I submit?


  • Please send your complete submission article, poem, short story, events, recipe, etc. Editorial pitches are also welcome but will entail a longer turnaround time for possible acceptance.
  • With each submission, please include how you'd like your byline to appear and also the location of the article, if applicable.
  • Accompanying photography is not required but extremely beneficial in allowing your submission to be considered. 10-25 images would be a great starting place. See below for requirements.


  • Your images should be sized 8.5" x 11" at 300dpi images for print and 2048px wide at 100dpi for online. Your images cannot be larger than 5MB each for online. Please note that you may be required to provide a larger size image depending on how the image is to be used by Lake Time Magazine.
  • Please include how you'd like your byline to appear and the location the photograph was taken. In the event of an article submission and the photography is taken by another individual, please include photographer's name or business- as it should appear in the magazine as well as a photo release form from the photographer granting permission to use the images.
  • 10-25 images would be a great starting place. Please do not send us a file with 200+ images in it, chances are we will simply overlook it.

*Note: by submitting your writing or photography through our online submissions form, you are granting Lake Time Magazine the right to use your submission. Edits to written submissions may be necessary and do not require the approval of the writer.

We do our best to respond to all submissions within a week or two but please understand if it takes a bit longer as the volume of submissions can vary and can be great at times.

If your submission does not get published do not be discouraged! Please keep in touch and submit more work for future consideration.
