FROM YOU, BACK TO YOU

Hey stranger! We're so happy you're interested in contributing to our blog. The Red Goji posts on a schedule of four recipes and four writing pieces per month. Each one is developed directly from reader submissions to ensure a diverse repertoire. Here's all you need to know to get your content to our mailbox ...

  • Submission is quick, easy, and open to all. Whether you want to share a recipe or writing, simply take some time to fill in our online form (linked below!) and we'll respond within a week of receiving it. Multiple submissions are absolutely welcome.

  • Look out for our submission themes. RG releases monthly and weekly submission themes in honor of cultural celebrations such as Christmas, Black History Month, Ramadan, and more. In response, readers are encouraged to submit recipes and writing related to their personal experiences with these events. No themes are in place for our August submission cycle, but stay tuned for next month!

  • Submissions are rolling. While we do have deadlines for monthly and weekly prompts, our staff reviews your recipes and writing year-round. Keep in mind, though—the earlier you submit, the earlier we might choose your work to be published.

  • We value your work. Crediting authors and recipe contributors is high in our priorities here at RG. For every post displaying your content, whether on social media or here on this blog, we'll be sure to attribute it to you as the author (that is, unless you don't want your name to be shared).

  • No recipe is too wild or wondrous for The Red Goji.

  • Each chosen submission gets the VIP treatment from our team. For you, this includes:

    • High-quality photographs of your dish, to be posted on our blog and social media.

    • Translation into 12 world languages.

    • Emblazonment onto our homepage and archives, with you listed as the contributor.

  • RG writes a background to each dish as an accompaniment to the recipe. If you want to have a hand in this, tell us your ideas in the designated section of the submission form.

  • We publish writing under the theme of food culture; you're welcome to form your own interpretation of this requirement.

  • Each chosen submission gets the VIP treatment from our team. For you, this includes:​

    • Collaboration with our artists to illustrate your piece.

    • Glorification in our headlines and library, with you listed as the author.

  • Poems must be between 50 and 300 lines total; all else should be between 600 and 3,000 words.

    • We accept individual poems and poem portfolios. The same line requirements apply for both.​

  • If another organization has already published your piece, you need only confirm that they do not have exclusive rights to your work before submitting it to us.
