We consider original contributions from experienced and emerging writers via Submittable. We consider interviews, reviews, profiles, essays, photos essays, and news articles—as long as it pertains to the Illinois cannabis industry.

We prefer finished work to pitches. We favor work with a human touch that accurately features/profiles Illinoisans, but we also accept all types of writing, from quirky tutorials to heavily researched news articles.

Expect one month or less for a decision. Please do not query us or send another manuscript until one month has passed. ILNJ takes First Serial Rights. All other rights remain with the author. At this time, we do not pay for contributions.
