Fermentation coversJoin the Fermentation Team!

There are a number of fun, creative ways you can become involved with Fermentation.

• Share your story: Has your family kept a sourdough starter from the mother for generations? Did a batch of kombucha go bad? Did a relative develop a vegetable variety that you maintain and treasure to this day? Is there a ferment that reminds you of home? We’re looking for readers’ stories about your experiences. Send your stories to Caitlin Wilson, along with high-resolution photos if possible. If selected, you will receive $25 for your story, plus $25 for your photo, if used in the Mailbox department of the print magazine.

Blog for us: We’re assembling a crew filled with folks skilled in various fermentation methods to share their expertise with our readers. Whether its bread making, brewing beer, or somewhere in between, we’d love for you to share your experience with the funky art of fermentation. If you or someone you know is ready and willing, please email our blogging coordinator for more information.

• Send us article queries and feedback: Are there any specific topics or plant cultivars that you’d like Fermentation to cover? If so, send your magazine feedback or article queries to managing editor Jean Denney. Before sending a print query to our editors, please read our additional guidelines.

We can’t wait to hear from our readers, and we’re sure to find inspiration in your stories, article ideas, and photos. If one or more of the bullet points above interests you, then please don’t hesitate—reach out to our editors to collaborate!
