How do I suggest a story for Landscape Architecture Magazine?
Story proposals (with digital pictures and plans whenever possible) should be sent to LAM’s Managing Editor Lisa Speckhardt. We accept story proposals all the time; the editorial staff reviews them, and if they seem right for us, we’ll be back in touch. Unfortunately, because of the volume of proposals we receive, we can’t get back to those we decide against. The best way to assess what articles we will be interested in is to read a few issues of the magazine closely.
How can I improve my chances of getting my project covered in Landscape Architecture Magazine?
Article proposals should be about projects in which landscape architects were involved, or about subjects of interest to landscape architects. ASLA award winners are often covered in LAM, so a good first step is submitting your project for an ASLA award. We also like proposals with unusual practice or technical angles.
Whom do I need to contact to get an editorial calendar?
If you would like to advertise, you can view the online media kit and editorial calendar.
If you’re interested in submitting article ideas, no editorial calendar is necessary—as mentioned above, we’re interested in seeing story proposals on all subjects anytime.
I saw an article in LAM on a topic that interested me, but I’m not sure what issue it was in. How can I find it?
My organization would like to use a photo/image we saw in LAM. Can you give me permission to do that?
No, we only have one-time rights to all images we use. You’ll need to contact the photographer or artist directly. Photo/image credits appear on the same page or on the initial page of the article.
I want to make multiple copies of an article and distribute them. Whom do I contact for permission?
Visit asla.org/LAM/Zinio to purchase single copies or a subscription for instant reprints. For custom reprints, please call 800-259-0470.
How do I get my book reviewed in LAM?
Send a copy of the book to Managing Editor Lisa Speckhardt. We cannot guarantee that we will review your book, but we will consider it. Books sent in for consideration for review will not be returned.
Who should get any press releases for Landscape Architecture Magazine?
