Beautiful Britain

Beautiful Britain magazine has just become a monthly publication. This is good news for writers because when it first hit the newsagents shelves in 2005 it was a quarterly publication - so whereas the editor only needed material for 4 issues a year, he now needs words for three times as many issues!

I should point out that Beautiful Britain does not accept unsolicited submissions, but the magazine is not staffed by millions of writers (thankfully) so, many of the pieces within it are freelance produced. To get your article considered, simply send a query letter to the editor, Rob Yarham (

Some of the magazine's contents can be viewed online - visit for further information and you'll see that articles cover a range of topics including history and interviews. A quick glance through the magazine demonstrates that some writers have produced a complete words and picture package, whilst other features have been written by writers, with photographs provided by other sources, so it could be a good market whether you take pictures or not.

Whilst the magazine is interested in Britain's history, it isn't entirely focussed on the past. The magazine's strapline proclaims, "Celebrating the past, embracing the future."

Clearly, by going monthly, Beautiful Britain magazine is embracing its own future. Does that future include one of your articles? There's only one way to find out!

Good luck!
