Coming Soon! A Clay & Milk Print Magazine
Clay & Milk is excited to announce our first-ever print magazine. Set to launch this fall, the magazine will be packed with real-life, raw examples of startup success stories, along with invaluable how-to advice, resources, insights, and opinions for Iowa startups and entrepreneurs.
The annual print magazine will be a new platform for entrepreneurs, founders, and community leaders to share their ideas, advice, and opinions with our readers.
How can you help?
Become a guest contributor
Do you have advice, ideas, or opinions you’d like to share with Clay & Milk readers? Do you have valuable insight applicable to Iowa’s startup ecosystem? You’re in luck! We are currently seeking magazine guest contributors to share their thoughts through opinion/thought pieces.
Guest contributions can take many forms. They can be:
- First-person accounts, in which founders and entrepreneurs describe their experiences in a way that compels readers to see the world or reflect on their own experiences in a different light.
- A hub for experts to present findings, highlight problems and propose solutions to Iowa’s startup community and to one another. Founders, investors, mentors, community leaders and many others may all have expertise on a given topic that may advance an important argument.
- A place where community leaders make their case, explain their position or share their opinion. Because these individuals are already viewed as leaders in the community, their pieces offer readers newsworthy insight.
Guest pieces for the magazine will typically run from 800 to 1,200 words, although we may consider publishing pieces that are shorter or longer.
Clay & Milk also publishes guest posts on our website year-round, so if your pitch isn’t right for the magazine there’s still a good chance of us publishing it online!
If you have a piece you’d like to be considered for the magazine, send your pitch (no more than 1-2 paragraphs) to email@example.com by May 15.
