(Astronomy: Market Spotlight.)

The editors say, "Reminisce celebrates the past with true stories and vintage photographs. We prefer a first-person, I-remember-when angle and rarely accept features written in third-person. We want the stories we feature to be exclusive to Reminisce, so please don't send your article to multiple magazines at once."

What They're Looking For

Reminisce does not publish fiction, preferring real first-person stories of your past.

The editors say, "We invite you to tell your own story—of personal experiences in years gone by; memorable people in your life; family trips or anecdotes; seasonal or holiday memories (may be submitted at any time of the year); recollections of now-famous people you knew 'back when;' little-known historical items, etc. We especially enjoy reading humorous stories about the past."

Writers are encouraged to include scanned images of their recollections with identification of the people in the image, the city, state, and year picture was taken.

How to Submit

Potential writers can share their stories via their online submission form.

The editors say, "We want to hear your story and share it with our readers. So be sure to include your name, mailing address, phone number and email address, if available. Include the name of the department your submission is for (Growing Up, Our Heroes, etc.) on the first page of your submission or in the email subject line. Don't forget to include the year or decade (can be approximate) in which your story/memory took place."
