ABOUT US

At Salty at Heart, we believe in bringing together collective insight, knowledge, and inspiration for the greater good. It is cultured, and nature-minded with down-to-earth stories, poems, interviews, and art that empower women, promote equality, and inspire a sustainable future. The name Salty at Heart is a metaphor for the connection of all life on Earth and our profound connection to the sea. The content is universal and highlights the work of female change-makers across the globe.

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

Poetry: We are always looking for poetry that expresses the human condition, revels in the power and beauty of nature, tells an enlightening story, brings us on a wild adventure, shares an incredible truth, or empowers us to think deeper about the world around us. 

Stories: We accept narratives and essays that are honest yet uplifting, with an underlying appreciation for community, nature, connection, growth, adventure, compassion, or discovery. Do you have a message or idea to share that tugs at you day and night? Do you have an important discovery to reveal or knowledge to share from your work, travels, or research? We would love to publish your creative voice and ideas. 

Interviews: We also accept interviews of inspiring female intellectuals, activists, scientists, humanitarians, explorers, politicians, or any badass change-maker from across the globe. Feel free to pitch us the interview before starting the interview process. 

Art: Are you an artist with a focus on nature, oceans, women, adventure, culture, or anything in-between? Send us your portfolio and we would love to consider featuring your work in the journal. All forms of creativity are up for consideration (film, painting, murals, graphic design, etc). 

Photography: Calling all photographers with a purpose! We look for conservation and wildlife storytelling, nature and adventure photos (mountains, oceans, and everything in between), people-based storytelling that shines a light on the human condition, or anything that furthers our understanding of eachother and this world.
