Cigar-related Magazine Submissions Requested

We really need some cigar-related content for the new magazine. It can be an article about a particular line of cigars, tours of a factory or travel to a cigar region or festival, a review of a particular vitola...anything cigar-related.

We're getting a respectable amount of lifestyle pieces, but this is CIGAR weekly. We need more content about cigars!

Don't worry if you don't think you write very well. We have a crack team of editors that can make you look good (as long as you aren't married to your prose). I've been with the magazine from the beginning, and I don't remember us ever turning a submission down (although we did have a couple of submissions that were married to their prose and resisted editorial refining of it).

What is unique about this publication and opposed to any other cigar publication is not only that it isn't industry-supported or driven, or that it's target audience isn't that rich bloke on his yacht drinking Cristal and herfing a Habano but rather the regular guy or professional that enjoys a good cigar. It's unique because 95% of the content it publishes comes from its membership. We want to publish articles that are of interest to you. The best way to insure them is to ask you to provide content that is of interest to you.

C'mon, guys! Hit me with it! Editing your prose only makes my skills stay sharp and even get better! Let's do this.
