A few years back, I wrote an article for Brave Hearts. I don't think they exist anymore as a print publication--only online--but they were part of Ogden Publications that offer many magazines to submit to still.
Those of you living in the Midwest or who have farming backgrounds might have a better selection of stories to offer but there are a variety of needs as well as fiction. You might be familiar with Grit, or Cappers or Natural Home to name a few.
My sample for Brave Hearts: "It's a red maple. They said it would grow fast," my husband, Curt, said as he helped his father lift the potted, 3-inch-diameter tree from the bed of the pickup. "I know it doesn't make up for the ones you lost, but it's a start."
Three months earlier, in the summer of 1996, an unprecedented tornado ripped through the little town of Laceyville, PA destroying long-standing homes and downing scores of trees.
More than a dozen stately maple trees had adorned my in-laws' farm. Two particularly large ones had graced the front lawn of the neatly trimmed farmhouse. . .
I had to find a story that would be a rural one and thankfully my in-laws live on a farm. Maybe you've got a story in there that is waiting to be written and would be perfect for one of these publications. Give it a try!
