The Washingtonian is a city magazine-it focuses almost exclusively on the Washington metropolitan area. The magazine was started in October 1965, and its ABC circulation is over 150,000, including 50,000 copies sold each month on area newsstands.
The types of articles we publish include service pieces (weekend getaways, great places to live, wedding guides); profiles of people (Dan Snyder, Barack Obama); investigative articles (“Why Is Lead Still Poisoning Our Children?”); rating pieces (Bush’s Cabinet, top home-repair services); institutional profiles (“How the Carlyle Group Is Making Billions,” “Cracking DC’s Masonic Code”); first-person articles (“Confessions of a Car Salesman,” “My Son, the Mormon”); stories that cut across the grain of conventional thinking (“First, Kill All the Lawyers”); articles that tell the reader how Washington got to be the way it is; light or satirical pieces (send the completed article, not the idea, because in this case execution is everything); and fiction that tells readers how a part of Washington works or reveals something about the character or mood or people of Washington.
Subjects of articles include federal and local government, business, sports, education, medicine, fashion, the environment, how to make money, how to spend money, real estate, performing arts, visual arts, dining out, travel, health, nightlife, home and garden, self-improvement, places to go, and things to do. Again, we are interested in almost anything as long as it relates to the Washington area.

THE HERB COMPANION, published by Ogden Publications, Inc., is a bimonthly magazine devoted to the interests of avocational herb gardeners, cooks, crafters and herb aficionados. In each issue we encourage and inform both novice and more experienced enthusiasts. A typical issue will include practical horticultural information, original recipes illustrating the use of herbs, thoroughly researched historical insights, step-by-step directions for herbal craft projects, profiles of notable individuals in the field, helpful hints and occasional book reviews.
We invite written queries and submissions of manuscripts, photographs and artwork related to most aspects of herbs. To query, a brief, focused paragraph or two will generally do. If the idea intrigues us and seems appropriate for our readers, we’ll ask to see the whole piece. No telephone queries, please. We occasionally accept articles describing proven herbal home remedies but we do not publish articles that prescribe herbs to treat conditions normally requiring the services of a health practitioner.
Pay is negotiated between writer and editor.
