Put A Egg On It is an irreverent digest-sized art and literary magazine printed on green paper out of New York City. It’s about food, cooking and the communal joys of eating with friends and family. The magazine features personal essays, cooking tips, photo essays of dinner parties and special art projects. Every issue also includes a themed recipe section.

Put A Egg On It was founded in 2008, a forerunner in the indie food magazine explosion. The magazine is inspired by the DIY photocopied music fanzines of the late 80s and early 90s, and eschews the aspirational nature of conventional food magazines in favor of a more documentarian and culturally inclusive approach. Rather than traditional food writing, contributors to Put A Egg On It include fiction writers, poets, musicians and artists writing about their own experiences. The recipes collected in each issue are gathered from chefs, artists, grandmothers and friends, each telling the story around the creation of a dish.

Put A Egg On It is looking for writing, photography and drawings by people who love food. We’re interested in essays and art that document the culture and community surrounding eating and cooking; work that explores the historic, artistic and metaphysical qualities of food. We’re looking for personal stories – not journalism. You don’t need to be a “food writer” or a “food photographer.” Everyone eats! 

For essay proposals, please write a short abstract, at least 250 words, and email to  submit@putaeggonit.com.

We’re also always looking for proposals for these regular features: 

  • Short pieces on a classic, regional food product: a loved packaged food item that is as much about time and place as it is about flavor.

  • Photo essays of a dinner party: An interesting meal shared by friends and/or family.

  • An illustration of a favorite childhood food memory for the back cover

  • Food and cooking-related poetry

Illustrators and photographers should send links to their portfolios or submit jpegs of an already completed (unpublished) project; Writers should email a PDF or link to samples along with their proposal to: submit@putaeggonit.com 

Please note: Put A Egg On It does not do product or restaurant reviews.
