Landscape Architecture Magazine, the award-winning monthly magazine of the American Society of Landscape Architects, is eagerly seeking enterprising freelance contributors with environmental expertise to help expand our coverage of landscape, water, ecology, habitat, and climate change issues. The magazine, founded in 1910, has a primary audience of 15,000 landscape architects, plus a broad following among planners, architects, ecologists, biologists, and others working in the environmental design professions.
LAM is looking for solid, knowledgeable reporting and inspired writing on a range of issues involving or affecting landscape architecture at all scales, which include small sites such as gardens, parks, and plazas, but also neighborhoods, cities, transportation networks, regions, rural areas, watersheds, shorelines, and ecosystems of all types.
Pitches should reflect clear ideas for stories (rather than simply topics) that involve or implicate landscape architecture design and practice. For more information on format, please see our ABOUT page for guidelines. Our stories appear in a range of lengths: opening section pieces run 300 to 500 words; departments, 1,200 to 1,800; and features are often longer form, up to 4,000 words. We place a premium on innovative ideas directed at solving environmental and human conflicts, including environmental justice.
LAM pays competitively and promptly, and we prize long-term relationships with authors. We are an equal opportunity employer and hold diversity and inclusion as core values in our work. The magazine is committed to representing a variety of backgrounds, skills, and perspectives.
