Submit articles and other content for possible publication
Do you have an article you’ve written that you want read by Bengals Illustrated subscribers? Would you like to submit information pertinent to subscribers that you believe would be informative to those interested in the advancements of the Bengal breed? Bengals Illustrated seeks to publish your well-written, informative, forward thinking articles and ideas.
Topics: Any subject that will interest people who are involved with the Bengal breed of cat; pet owners, breeders, professionals. The publication also appeals to veterinarians, general cat enthusiasts, and those in a scientific work environment. The topics we publish deal with forward thinking ideas in the advancement of the breed, soul touching topics from the heart invloving the Bengal cat and general topics of interest to feline enthusiasts. We try to stay away from material you can find everywhere/anywhere else.
Format: Pieces published are generally under 1,000 words in length. They will be formatted professionally (by one of our editors) often including sub-headings, photographs and sometimes lists of relevant tips. Supporting material that expands the topic is welcome. Articles focus on “need to know” and new content. We also consider book reviews, reviews of videos, and any other relevant Bengal content.
Editing: Bengals Illustrated reserves the right to edit your submission for clarity, style, and format. You will not have final review rights before your article is published. If you read through the site and previous publications, you will find that all authors have been well-served in this editing process.
Payment: Bengals Illustrated is not a paying market. Since philosophically, we believe writers should be paid for content, we offer compensation in the form of discounted advertising rates. Any writing which is overly commercial in nature will not be published. All authors receive a brief biographical sketch that includes your cattery/business name. This is published with your article.
Author Rights: If you are submitting a potential feature article, we request exclusive worldwide rights to publish the article via Bengals Illustrated publications for ninety days (one publishing quarter). Bengals Illustrated, retains non-exclusive rights to archive your article on the site, further use it for subsequent publications and all other rights as stated in the disclaimer below, which you must submit to be published.

If you have written an article that you feel is perfect for a Bengals Illustrated publication and it has been published elsewhere online, please email the Editor. If the article has not been overly published within the Bengal cat community, your piece might still merit consideration for publication in Bengals Illustrated.
