How To Submit Manuscripts to Wisconsin Magazine of History
About Wisconsin Magazine of History
The Wisconsin Magazine of History publishes widely in the history, biography and culture of Wisconsin. We welcome manuscripts that present fresh topics or shed new light on older ones. Recent topics have ranged from a wheelman's ride across Wisconsin in the 19th century to collecting Civil Rights manuscripts in the 1960s.
The Society helps people connect to the past by collecting, preserving and sharing stories. We invite manuscripts that help fulfill that mission: ones that inform readers about our sense of place, how we live and work, who we are as a people and our heritage of shared experience in the state.
