Submit Your Story

If you'd like to be considered for publication, here are details to send your true stories and vintage photos to America's premier nostalgia magazine.

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.

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, or other miscellaneous materials, please read the complete list of Contributor’s Guidelines.

We need your help! We’re currently looking for stories around these subjects—do you have one to share? See all »

To be considered, email your submission to submissions@reminisce.com

After you send us photos or articles, please be patient. We receive a lot of material, and we read it all. Our small staff can’t respond personally to most inquiries and letters, but we will always let you know if we publish your submission.

If you would like to send us feedback about Reminisce, Reminisce Extra, or our web site, email feedback@reminisce.com.

If you have a question about your subscription to Reminisce or Reminisce Extra, email customercare@reminisce.com or call us toll-free at (888) 859-7838.

Thank you for taking the time to send your memories to Reminisce.
