Submissions

At this time we are looking for volunteer writers who know about the military life and able to contribute an article once a year to twice a month. The CF community is a lively and vibrant community with activities, events and initiatives happening on bases and wings across the country.

Below you will find our sections, feel free to pitch us an idea or to contact us and we can find a worthy topic for you to write about. Your article will be featured on our website and in our Ezine, plus on all our social media sites.

Submission Guidelines
We are looking for writers and photographers who are related to a military member – serving or retired and serving and retired military members.

We suggest that freelancers familiarize themselves with the content of our magazine before sending us a query. Check out Ubiquitous Sections before pitching an idea. Keep in mind that the purpose of Ubiquitous is to empower, educate and enhance military families’ lives; hence every article that we publish needs to have at least one of these components – if not all.

Note: that we do not publish fiction or poetry at this time.

When submitting an article idea:

  • Send us a brief summary of your proposed article. Include the topic of your article, how many words and your sources.
  • When emailing your story please put article submission in subject line.
