Writers’ Guidelines

Twelve times a year BCBusiness delivers features that shed light on the significant issues and trends shaping the province. As B.C.’s premier business publication, we naturally gravitate to stories that affect the working lives of our readers. But we also know those readers are more than their job titles; that means giving them stories that appeal to their interests beyond the bottom line.

Our stories demand lively, comprehensible writing that displays breadth and depth of research. We expect writers to develop a point of view backed up by sound logic and solid reporting. An engaging writing style coupled with an ability to tell a story, not just relate facts, is a must.

We generally prefer to use a real story as a springboard for exploring more complex issues or trends. Rather than an overview of the forest industry, for example, we might tell the story of how one company staved off bankruptcy, referencing some facts about the industry within the piece or in a sidebar. We do not accept unsolicited articles and are not interested in generic service pieces.

To become familiar with the kind of stories we publish, the best thing to do is read three or four recent issues cover-to-cover, or visit our archives online. This will give you an idea of the magazine’s scope, approach and style.

While the short pieces in the up-front section are written in-house, we do use freelancers for the balance of the editorial (excluding columns). Full-length features vary in length from 2,000 to 3,500-plus words. Rates vary with the story’s complexity and the writer’s experience. Please note that lead times are typically two months and, due to a small staff, it may not always be possible to respond to each query.

Story ideas are always welcome. New contributors should also send a brief note detailing background and experience, as well as clippings of previously published magazine articles. Queries should be sent in writing via email or mail to:

Illustrators & Photographers

BCBusiness is always looking for talented photographers and illustrators to contribute to our pages. We are open to viewing both professional and student work. We are also interested in visual story ideas or series (pending or complete) with a regional business focus. Submit your work by sending a link to an online portfolio, or e-mail low-resolution samples to Associate Art Director  Ben Oliver.
