Wisconsin Trails Magazine, 333 W. State St., Milwaukee, WI 53201. Email: Website: Kristen Scheuing, Editor and Amy Guckeen, Assistant Editor. 50%-80% freelance. "Wisconsin Trails is 'The Magazine of Life in Wisconsin.' It features articles on Wisconsin people, history, nature, adventure, lifestyle, arts, sports, recreation and business. We're interested in the out-of-the-way and the popular destinations-but everything must have a Wisconsin tie or connection. We strive to publish writing that takes readers beyond the nuts and bolts of an adventure and shares a sense and spirit of place and people." Works with professional and previously published writers. Circ. 40K. Bimonthly. Pays on publication. Publishes ms 3-12 months after acceptance. Buys first and one-time rights, including electronic rights. No reprints. Responds 3-4 months. Subscription $24.95. Guidelines online at
CURRENT NEEDS: "We make no assignments without first having a sense of writers' abilities and previous experience." Pays $40 for short pieces and $0.25/word for features and other departments. Submit cover letter of introduction and at least 2 published clips (if you are new to the magazine), as well as a detailed query letter and bio by mail with SASE or by email.
PHOTOS/ART: "Color digital photography." Payment varies.
HINTS: "Common mistakes: Being unfamiliar with the magazine, its content, format, voice and recent coverage; Querying about subjects unrelated to Wisconsin; Mistaking a destination for a story idea--for instance, saying you'd like to write a piece about Green Bay; Not following the writers' guidelines for submissions; The inability to be open to editing and constructive criticism meant to improve manuscripts; Sloppiness, submitting manuscripts with typos, factual, inaccuracies, etc.; Missing deadlines."
