Editorial and Submission Guidelines

We receive hundreds of marketing and public relations emails and phone calls every month and cannot respond to all of them. Please note that due to the high volume, Georgia Trend no longer accepts public relations pitches via phone. If you are a public relations professional, please send press releases to pr@georgiatrend.com. If it is a good fit for our publication, someone on our editorial staff will contact you.

Before pitching a company or idea to Georgia Trend, we recommend you take a look at a few past issues on our website to get an idea of the topics we feature and look at our Editorial Calendar. The magazine primarily covers economic development, politics and business in the state of Georgia, and we work 4-5 months out from the issue date.

Georgia Trend does not accept unsolicited articles or columns and does not cover events or business outside the state of Georgia.

If you are a freelance writer in Georgia or with knowledge of Georgia politics, business or economic development and are interested in writing for Georgia Trend, we encourage you to submit a resume and clips to editor@georgiatrend.com. You must be previously published in another publication to be considered.
