Little Blue Marble is OPEN TO SUBMISSIONS as of January 3, 2022. Submissions will likely close on July 31, 2022.
See below for how to submit.
Please note that while we do pay for original content (see rates below), Little Blue Marble‘s current operating budget supports only one or two paid pieces per month. As we grow, we will be happy to increase that number.
We welcome submissions from writers anywhere. We value inclusivity, no matter your race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, class, and physical or mental ability. No stone should remain unturned when discussing climate solutions, and we want our content to reflect that.
Please note, however, that if you have had a story published in Little Blue Marble in the current calendar year, we ask you to not submit another story until the next calendar year’s submission period. This is so we can keep our limited publishing slots open for diverse voices.
