Want to contribute to Mettle Magazine?

There is an impact of living a life with mettle. Mettle whose strength is not in demanding our own rights or ability to cope for ourselves, but for others. Mettle that touches the hearts of others who are in pain. Mettle is having the spirit to believe that no matter the circumstances (or the evidence) there is always hope to be found. 

As such, we are seeking submissions in photography, art, encouraging thoughts, practical tips, stories, essays, book reviews, music suggestions, poems, and dispatches that embody a strong sense of METTLE: 

(1) a person's ability to cope well with difficulties or to face a demanding situation in a spirited and resilient way
(2) the ability to meet a challenge or persevere under demanding circumstances; determination or resolve
(3) vigor and strength of spirit or temperament
(4) quality of temperament or disposition

PLEASE NOTE: These stories are to be written for Lyme warriors at all different stages of their journey, but to be considered MUST embody the mettle definition above and have a thread of hope in them. 

PLEASE NOTE: With the high interest and submissions only those creators, authors, designers, and photographers selected will be notified.


  • MAY ISSUE: Deadline- March 1 (Topics Accepted: Lyme disease awareness month/summer/early fall focus) [Response: April 15th]
  • OCTOBER ISSUE: Deadline- August 1 (Topics Accepted: late fall/ holiday/winter focus) [Response: September 15th]

DISPATCHES: All dispatch submissions are accepted year-round.

Thank you so much for all of your love, support, and excitement for this magazine!!

Again, don't forget the deadline is March 1st!! 

Thank you for all of your support!

You may wonder why I mention the instagram reels that I create and why it matters about watching, liking, saving, commenting, and sharing my reels. I wouldn't know about this either if social media wasn't part of my job, but each time that you watch one of my reels, like them, comment on them share them or save them I make a small commission which adds up to help me. It doesn't cost you anything, but it does help me. THANK YOU! Just watching a reel and liking it are huge helps!! Thank you again for everything friends! The best is yet to come!!
