Our Contributors are the women who power Accede.

All of our Contributors are women somewhere in their mid-life years. They’re from all areas of America and the world. These are women who lead successful lives - who are building, growing, laughing, and dancing as they make their way along life’s paths. They fight, cry, lose, and win. They love. They mourn. They’ve been laughed at, mocked, and hurt beyond words. They’ve stood up to bullies and they’ve sat down with a lonely friend. All of them have been knocked on their fannies more than once but these women … they always, ALWAYS, get back up.

In short, they are exceptional, amazing women.

Are you one of them? Submit your work!

If you’re in Midlife and love your life, you’re probably one of these outstanding women. If you’d like to contribute, we’re currently accepting submissions for the Summer issue of Accede. The theme is Unity. Unity with self, those around us, spouse, kids, family, nature, unified style and fashion, the 4th of July …  the choice of how to express it is for the writers and photographers. Stories are awesome. Factual articles are great. Your business experiences. Family histories are wonderful.

We do not accept any politically themed articles.

Submitting is also a great opportunity to work with a photographer to illustrate the article you write. We love giving photographers the opportunity to be creative and obtain a tearsheet for their portfolio. Most are happy to collaborate with you. If that isn’t possible, we can usually set something to develop an illustrative piece for your work. It just depends on the article or story you submit.
