Today’s Monday Markets feature a “green magazine” and one geared toward students. The third magazine on the list is published for physicians who are looking to establish or change practices.

As the largest independent environmental magazine, with a circulation of 50,000, E serves an important role as the voice for the environmental movement and as a vital information source on national and international coverage of environmental issues. Founded in 1990, E is sponsored by Earth Action Network, a nonprofit organization located in Norwalk, Connecticut. In an attempt to stay consistent with our values and goals, we print our magazine on recycled paper and screen our advertisers carefully.
1. We request that writers send an e-mail (preferred) or written query when first contacting E with a story idea. FAXed queries are acceptable. Please indicate approximate article length and which section of the magazine you are targeting, allowing a three-month lead time. We will contact you on acceptance of an article and assume no responsibility for unsolicited manuscripts. Please include writing samples and a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) with your submission. We do not send free issues to potential freelancers.?
2. Payment: E pays 30 cents per word upon publication. Please submit an invoice upon acceptance, including your social security or tax ID number.?
3. Articles should be submitted on deadline in typed form (preferably in MS Word) with an approximate word count indicated. E-mail transmissions are preferred, although IBM-compatible disks are also acceptable. Please include a few sentences about yourself for the brief “author bio” we include at the end of many articles.?
4. Articles for E should be written in a journalistic style in order to be easily understood by those not immersed in the environmental movement. Unfamiliar terms, scientific language and jargon should be avoided or explained for the benefit of the lay reader. We are not interested in strident, opinionated writing. We want a balanced tone that will not alienate the casual reader; E is an “advocacy” magazine that aims to broaden the base of the environmental movement, not to preach to the converted.?
5. We are interested in articles dealing with environmental issues, current environmental thought and action, and the dynamics of the movement (see “Section Guidelines” below). We are also interested in articles that explore the connections between environmental and other social change/humanitarian issues. We like articles which suggest ways to become involved and include places to write letters of support or protest, contact names and addresses, resources to tap, etc.?
6. If photos and/or artwork are available, please indicate so in your query. PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY ART MATERIALS UNTIL THEY ARE REQUESTED. We are not responsible for unsolicited artwork. Rates for images are negotiable.?
7. We reserve the right to edit for grammar, brevity, clarity and tone. We prefer gender-neutral phrasing-i.e., “humankind” instead of “mankind.”

KEY CLUB is published two times during the academic year. Two printed issues are mailed to Key Clubs and are also posted on the Web site.
It is the official publication of Key Club International, the largest high school service organization in the world with more than 245,000 members in 28 nations. Members of Kiwanis clubs, who sponsor these youth groups and have an active interest in them, also read the magazine.
Members of Key Club are service-minded students interested in helping others and in making their communities and schools better places in which to live and learn. Because service and leadership is the basis of Key Club, those topics are important to KEY CLUB’s editorial slant. We are looking for general-interest, academic, self-help and service- and leadership-related feature articles that help Key Clubbers become better students and better Key Club members.
Each couple of years, Key Club International develops a Major Emphasis Program around which nearly one article per issue is written. Appropriate articles for this category should offer guidance for Key Clubs and individual members in their efforts to contribute time and service to their communities.
Some of the published articles include “Service’s Profound Perspective,” “How to Follow the Leader,” “Amazing Fund-Raising,” and “Spice Up Your Study Habits.”
Read the magazine before submitting any material. We quickly reject first-person remembrances and single-source stories. We publish articles that are the product of first-hand interviews as well as research in published sources. Writers should substantiate major points in the article with illustrative examples and quotes from persons involved in the subject or qualified to speak about it. We also like to include club members as sources and will help writers obtain those. Authors are encouraged to include anecdotes—real-life or hypothetical scenes—to illustrate the points of the article. After reading the first several paragraphs, the reader should have a good understanding of what the article will address.
Pays $100-$400 for 250-1500 words, on publication.
