Be an Else Magazine Contributor
Else Magazine is a resource for ALL of us to teach, learn from, and inspire each other.
Your perspective is a big deal - your photos, stories, and ideas validate other Else-minded folks who occasionally get caught in a swirl of doubt or dreamer shame (it happens to the best of us). What you already happen to know can activate a new path for someone out there, transforming their wishful thinking into their waking reality. Your ponderings, even if you don't have all the answers (hint: none of us do), can awaken a sleeping dragon of an idea that just might change everything.
So share what you're learning as you're learning it. Inspire us with what you've already made so in your life. Let your Else spark more Else.
We Welcome Your Photos
Else is real. Stock photography? Not so much. We'd much rather showcase YOUR photos for our readers than a polished version of what supposedly the perfect life should be. Share your Else moments caught on camera and, together, let's spark more Else in this world.

We Welcome Your Articles
We are ALL creating our individual flavors of Else alongside one another, and we have so much to learn from each and every one of us. If you are someone who has opted out of the mainstream status quo humdrum (or plan to), or you have unique perspective to share about creating a life of freedom, ease, and aliveness, we welcome your submissions.
Types of Articles We Feature:
- Stories - May we peek into your world? Tell us your about your journey, let us watch the movie of your Else. You may not even know how inspiring you are. But we do.
- Musings - What’s on your mind and heart? Spill it out. Open letters, philosophical rants, wild ideas, ponderings over the mysteries of this life. Your voice is awesome.
- How To’s - No but seriously, how’d ya do it? Break it down for us step by step, because we want to know!
- Reporting - What Else is awesome? Whether it's someone in your community doing life differently, emerging pop culture that hints at a transforming world, or a current event that inspires new possibility, share the new news.
Topics We Love to Cover:
- Creative Livelihood - Self-invented careers they don’t post on LinkedIn, ditching the corporate golden handcuffs to revive an old dream, discovering a simple way to create cash flow and get your life back… we want to hear about it.
- Perspective Gained - You know those life moments that snap into focus what actually matters - be it a cancer scare, the birth of your first child, or a mean boss who yelled at you for the last time? Tell us what your soul now knows.
- Unique Housing - Whether you are living in a van down by the river, you converted an old shed into an Airbnb rental, or you found a way to build a home for the price of a car, ummmm, please dish it.
- Spiritual Exploration - Sages, healers, interpreters of the stars - your wisdom about navigating this human existence is needed. We are listening.
- Location Liberation - Have you created pure location freedom so you can work while wandering? Simplified your home life to take more trips? Or found ways to explore this Earth with three kids in tow? Teach us your ways.
- Free Your Finances - Oh yeah, money, that one little detail that comes with this current human existence in space and time. How have you made that work for you? If you’ve got secrets, Else peeps want ‘em.
- Less is More - How has simplification made your life rich? (Note: That’s all there is to say. Keeping this one simple. Because less is more).
