FAQ

So, you want to write for Men’s Fitness?

Men’s Fitness is Australia’s premier health and fitness magazine for Australian men. Every month we print great articles on exercise, health, nutrition, training and sport. Monthly, we show you how to take care of your most valuable asset: your body. Plus you’ll find lots of entertaining reading on cars, movies, apps, adventure and travel, plus lots of advice on women and sex. It’s a one-stop shop for blokes who want to make their life better. It takes a lot of people to make the magazine each month, including freelance writers, photographers and designers.

So, yes, we do accept freelance articles. But they are accepted because they are suitable for publication, meaning they’re well-written, well-researched, are suitable for the tone of the magazine and are a benefit to the reader. I’ll that again slowly, they are a benefit to the reader.
Here’s how you can submit an article to Men’s Fitness
1. Read the magazine.
2. Read the magazine again.
3. Conceive a story that is suitable.
4. Write an overview of the story, no more than 200 words long.
5. List your sources: who you’re going to talk to; what you’re going to do, where you’re going to go, again no more than 200 words.
6. Write a brief account of your experience as a writer. Send it to the editor:todd@mensfitnessmagazine.com.au
7. Then wait for at least a month for a response.
