Please take a look at our website before sending an email. Also consider getting a subscription to take a deeper look into the magazine (please note this has absolutely no bearing on becoming a contributor).

Thanks for your help in growing American West - I'm excited to welcome in a new group of conributors, who we can hopefully continue showcasing for years to come.
