Reminisce helps readers “bring back the good times” through true stories and vintage photographs. Any appropriate photo or memory is welcome, as long as it originated from 1900 through the 1970s.
We also publish a sister magazine to Reminisce called Reminisce EXTRA. It’s similar in format and is available by a separate bimonthly subscription–mailed on alternating months. This lets subscribers choose whether to receive a magazine every month or every other month.
Our editorial style is relaxed and conversational, so please write your memory the way you’d relate it to a friend. We invite “regular” people like you to tell their own stories. As a result, most of the issue is “written by our readers,” who are eager to share their memories. We rarely use freelance-written material.
Because our features don’t often run more than 700 words, we do not read lengthy submissions or books. We prefer a first-person “I remember when” angle and rarely accept features written in third-person.
If you would like us to consider your story, short memory, photos, illustrations, home movie film or other miscellaneous materials, please read the complete list of Contributor’s Guidelines.
