Is there a story about Atlanta that you think needs to be heard? ATL+ Magazine is a culturally diverse inclusive lifestyle magazine that highlights the essence of the "who, what, when, where, and why" of Atlanta. ATL+ Magazine will publish compelling "grassroots" stories, photography, and design, overlooked by major media outlets to help celebrate our city's triumphs and revel in things that make metro Atlanta so unique. This publication offers a vast array of media that will create opportunities to compel our consumers to respond, innovate new opinions, and construct extensive professional networks in Atlanta. We would like to invite you to submit content in these areas to share your own passions and interests with us. Some of the topics we are passionate about are our lifestyle, culture, fashion, entertainment, and stories that connect our readers. However, you might be writing about something that is unknown to us, and you think we need to know about it, please send it!

How We Review Submissions

Magazine and digital submissions are reviewed by our Editorial Board. We reserve the right to edit all submissions for accuracy and consistency. Each submission is edited according to the spelling, grammar, and punctuation conventions of American English; we follow the conventions detailed in the Chicago Manual of Style. 

In its editing, ATL+ Magazine strives to preserve each submitter’s unique voice and artistic intent over absolute grammatical or idiomatic correctness.
