Call For Submissions: True Stories of Debt in America

Edward Shepard
November 10, 2017

The Tiller Money Journal, a new publication launching this winter with an all-new website, seeks original writing about personal financial debt for the month of December.

In our society, we’re told we can spend our way to happiness. And we’re conditioned to keep up with the Joneses. But debt is at an all-time high. And the reality is that many Americans of all income levels deal with financial stress daily. And the debt industry keeps growing. 

For some people, confronting and escaping crushing debt is one of their greatest life achievements. For many others, that dream is still far on the horizon.

We’re looking for revelatory articles exploring personal, true stories around these issues. Stories about getting into and out of debt, and articles exploring the myriad contradictions around personal debt in America.

  • Our open-submission rate is $50.
  • Submissions are now open for stories about debt.
  • All submissions or pitches should be emailed to
  • Our general submission policies are here.

We look forward to reading your submissions!
