The You&Me Blog

Hello to all the great, talented people who may be thinking of querying us. We have been so fortunate with our submissions lately that the editorial calendar is currently full. We will be open for queries again starting September 15, 2017. Thank you very much.
Unfortunately, You&Me lacks the resources to dialogue with all our potential contributors. And even more unfortunately, we are not able to accept submissions from all those who query us. So we have created this blog post with an update on "why was my story not accepted?" in hopes that it will answer that question for those that wish to know. Here are the chief reasons we cannot use a queried submission--not necessarily in order, but mostly so. 1. The query was for a work that was not within our content guidelines. For example: poetry, cartoons, fiction, advertising, "guest posts," factual...
The editorial we, that is. After a well-deserved break (the first in nine years!) the "editorial staff" is back to work. We are also very pleased and excited to be bringing you a host of great new articles over the next few months, so don't forget to visit us frequently.
Here at You&Me we are looking forward to a happy and productive 2017 for all as we enter our 11th (!) year of publication. Best wishes to everybody for the new year!
It has come to our attention that there may be malicious spam out there with a email address such as "officeatyouandmemagazine.com" We do not send ANY emails using "something at youandme...etc" so if you get such as email do not open it or any attachments and delete it. Thanks
Hi everyone! Time for another update with hopefully helpful suggestions for those thinking of querying us about an article that we might like to buy for our magazine. Number one, (although if you are reading this you are probably not the audience we are wishing would learn this) please, please, please read the magazine you are considering for your query. We have lost track of the number of queries we get that ask questions such as "what kind of articles are you looking for?" Such queries will never be successful at any publication. These happen, we believe, because writers find our name at...
Merle Revel author of "Where's My Boob?" http://www.youandmemagazine.com/articles/mastectomy-wheres-my-boob has provided us with an update: "Where Is My Boob?" is now a book. It is available on amazon, along with some of her other works. https://www.amazon.com/Where-my-Boob-MERLE-REVEL-ebook/dp/B00U1LARZ6/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1476732227&sr=8-4&keywords=where+is+my+boob
Seems a cardiologist, Dr. Aseem Malhotra, has released a crowdfunded documentary on diet called “The Big Fat Fix,” in which he talks about how our culture has developed a dangerous misunderstanding of dietary fat. Basically over the past 50 years or so, dietary fat has been “demonized” and blamed for a variety of health problems, yet scientific study has pretty much failed to verify that it really does cause these diseases. In fact, a diet with a good amount of fat in it may help treat or prevent some diseases, such as diabetes. With all due respect, this is not new information. A seemingly...
Some authors are more into cross promoting their work than others. Maissa Bessada ( http://www.youandmemagazine.com/articles/infection-what-could-have-happened ) is happy to tell us: “I wrote a six episode SciFi satire called The Destiny of Special Agent Ace Galaksi. http://www.acegalaksi.com “ and she’d love for you to check it out. Others, when we go looking for some other aspects of their work and lives to highlight are a little more elusive. Christine Venzon, author of http://www.youandmemagazine.com/articles/fire-ants-the-slings-and-stings... is obviously a freelance writer according to...
