Writing opportunities

*Currently seeking submissions for online magazine

Gen Tales is where genealogy meets history. We are currently seeking stories about your family tree.


  • Well written and sourced personal slant on history that notes in some form the writer’s relationship to the subject
  • Sign up on the Medium site as a writer and enroll in their Partner Program to be eligible for earnings (all earnings will be paid directly from Medium to you, so even if Aliconia stops publishing Gen Tales, writers will continue to have the opportunity to earn from their writing and to continue adding articles to other parts of the site)
  • Fill out this form to be added to the publication as a writer.

How it works: Once you are signed up for Medium and added to the publication, you can add a completed draft or published article to Gen Tales for addition to the magazine. You will also be eligible for Medium Editor curation and distribution.

Be sure to read the Policies on the Medium site. You will own your work and can remove it at any time. You will have direct access to all of your article stats via your writer dashboard. Your earnings on your article are all yours and deposited directly to you by Medium (via Stripe, they have instructions when you register). The Gen Tales editor will do a cursory look through your article for any major issues prior to publication but will not change the content. If your article is not acceptable, you will be notified and allowed to resubmit.

You do not need to be a paid Medium subscriber to submit articles. You can promote your articles any way you wish. You will have a friend link that you can share to allow select people beyond the paywall to read your articles that you can use to your discretion.
