Country Roads is looking for southern cuisine writers

June 4, 2022

Posted by Margarita Sanabria

Louisiana and Mississippi food writers! Particularly writers interested in foodways and cultural explorations of our regional cuisine, we at Country Roads want to work with you.

We have a Cuisine section in every issue—so we are absolutely always looking to connect with local food writers and to hear their pitches.


Country Roads is a cultural reporting publication focusing on South Louisiana, the Mississippi Delta, and the Gulf Coast. It aims to help its readers to make the most of life in their region by offering articles showcasing daytrips and weekend getaways; restaurant news, reviews, and recipes; reporting on developments in historic preservation, conservation, and natural history; profiles of regional artists, crafters, and other folks of note; and explorations of popular Southern folklore and humor.


  • Write a short introduction about yourself
  • Include a paragraph highlighting your writing experience, relevant credentials and publication credits
  • Attach links to your strongest work or portfolio, and online profile.


  • $200-$400 per article. Rates depend on the writer’s experience, the amount of interviews/reporting/travel required, and word count. And our stories these days generally run from 800-1,500 words.
