How to be a writer or photographer for Posh Seven Magazine…

Posh Seven Magazine is an award winning lifestyle magazine for women who live in Loudoun County, Great Falls and Reston. We highlight a “ osh” lifestyle with a special emphasis on Route “Seven”. We publish our magazine bi-monthly and have thousands of local and regional women readers. Our dynamic print and online publications provide current and informative, hyper-local content related to health, education, culinary arts, travel, trends, culture and personal profiles connected to our communities. Its content is geared to inform, entertain and inspire women of diverse backgrounds.

We take pride in producing a 100% reader generated magazine produced locally in Ashburn, VA.

We believe in women. Posh Seven readers are women between the ages of 25 – 55. They are working, and stay-at-home moms, as well as, single, married and divorced women. They live in Loudoun County, Great Falls and Reston. Our digital reach is larger and encompasses the District and it’s suburbs.

We are always seeking new contributors who would like to produce articles that focus on local issues and people, exploring our area and its offerings for families. Each issue is a mix of features geared to entertain, enlighten and inform.

We publish original stories, photographs (and videos) on our print and digital properties as well as our social properties on Facebook and Instagram. We are currently not taking any poetry or book reviews. Our voice is not formal and your writing should be consistent with our tone. Conversational and personal is our goal. We pay $50-$75 for general submissions and up to $350 for assignments requiring research.
