How to contribute

Share your stories

The Ensign magazine couldn’t exist without a team of volunteer writers, photographers, and avid boaters like you. Our contributors have gone on to publish books and win awards, so you’ll be in good company. And you don’t have to be a professional writer or photographer to contribute. You’ll work with a team of professionals, whose job it is to make you look good.

The Ensign welcomes real-life boating adventures, cruising tales, how-to project guides, articles about boating lessons learned, informational videos, boating news, and much more. Peruse our back issues to get a feel for the types of content we publish. Then contact us with your ideas or a rough draft. We can’t wait to work with you!
