“Email all submissions direct to me by attaching as a WORD document to your email. I personally review and work with all article submissions/writers.
I also am a wilderness guide from May-August, so I can’t review submissions during this time frame each year. I spend the months of November – April working on articles to run in the upcoming year’s issues of BWJ.
BWJ is a quarterly magazine that is the “Last Word” in all things BWCAW/Quetico. We have a feature only article format of ten articles with quality color photography and printing – 100 pages/issue. We cover anything of interest to wilderness paddlers/campers/anglers — all aspects of our coverage area are potential BWJ articles. Most common are wilderness canoe route journals, wilderness skills development/advice, where/when/how to fish the canoe country, wilderness essays, wilderness gear reviews/recommendations, area history, area personalities, winter activities and more. We have been publishing in-depth exclusive articles on the BWCAW/Quetico for the past 34 years. We have very loyal subscribers who are very knowledgeable about all aspects of wilderness canoe tripping. We publish very few stories geared to the novice. We prefer expert advice so you need to know what you are talking/writing about to be published in BWJ.” Circ. 12K. Quarterly. Pays 30 days after publication.
