Submissions

We’d love for you to work with us.

My goal here is to get you thinking: "If I was going to write for Supermaker, what might I write about?"

At the core of Supermaker, we do two things: 1) celebrate diverse, independent consumer brands, and 2) start conversations that promote better businesses and workplaces. Our writers cover the real life stuff that happens at work, and shine a spotlight on the people behind the progressive brands of our era.

There are no hard rules when it comes to writing for Supermaker, but we encourage approaches that inspire confidence for our readers when navigating their own careers and businesses, and empower them to take positive actions. We don’t back away from topics like mental health, intersectionality, or equality, and some of our best work relies on approachable storytelling that fosters emotional connections and prompts readers to self-reflect. It may help to think of yourself as both a storyteller, and a conversation starter.

Don’t hold back. We love big, crazy ideas that other media companies won’t risk getting behind. We like understated, actionable ones too. And we believe in the power of Supermaker as a platform to drive change.

That’s why we generally put the onus on you to generate ideas for your articles, rather than assigning work directly. Personal experiences and affinity for the subject at hand are irreplaceable. That said, there are instances in which we do assign work—particularly when Supermaker has identified an up & coming brand to feature, or we’re covering a current event.

Here are some of our frequently covered topics:

  • Founding Stories. Spotlighting Supermakers and the moments that kickstarted their entrepreneurial endeavors.
  • Newsworthy. Examining current events that impact businesses and the creative community.
  • Brands and Products. Discover some of the most artistic and disruptive consumer brands around.
  • How Businesses Grow. Actionable advice from founders of consumer brands about how to succeed in growing your business.
  • Career Compass. Navigating ambition, relationships, and obstacles at work.
  • Worktivism. Working together to address matters of inequality in business and the workplace.
  • Inclusivity. Advocating for the voices and practices of people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized.
  • Cash Flow. Making finance understandable and approachable, and exploring sustainable alternatives to the male-dominated, “get rich or die trying” mindset of venture capital.
  • How Businesses Grow. Actionable advice on how to prioritize and take on important steps in the growth of your business.
  • Entrepreneurship. Balancing humanity, hustle, and hardship while taking businesses to the next level.
  • Creativity. Invoking intuition and collaboration, dreaming big and freeing yourself up mentally.
