Submit a Story

Thank you for submitting your story idea to Palate Press: The online wine magazine. Please use the fields below to include the Topic, Suggested Title, Lede (first sentence), and in the Message box, a sentence or two explaining the story idea.

We are always excited to publish great stories by new writers. If you have not previously been published in Palate Press, please include a link to your website or other writing sample. We are now paying for most of the stories we run, and we always include a short bio and link to the writer’s website.

Our editorial board reviews all submissions for relevance and suitability to the publication. Sometimes we decline a story that is a strong concept but redundant to material already published or in our pipeline.

If your story is accepted for publication, you will be asked to include 2 or more photographs or other pieces of relevant art with your final draft. Art should be high resolution with a minimum width or height of 750px.

Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing your by-line in Palate Press.
