From the YES! Magazine guidelines:

YES! Magazine documents how people are creating a more just, sustainable, and compassionate world. We welcome submissions that relate directly to this focus.

Each issue of YES! includes a series of articles focused on a theme—about solutions to a significant challenge facing our world—and a number of timely, non-theme articles. Our non-theme section provides ongoing coverage of issues like health, climate change, globalization, media reform, faith, democracy, economy and labor, social and racial justice, and peace building.

YES! is not interested in simply bemoaning the problems that face our society. Instead, we highlight solutions in action that address the roots of our deepest ecological, social, and political problems. We emphasize engaging storytelling and factual accuracy. We are especially interested in authentic stories of positive change from the grassroots that can serve as models and inspiration for others. We also publish essays that frame or re-envision societal trends—and how these could bring about transformation and progress.
