Content Submissions

If you are a content creator who’s focus is belly dance, why not consider sharing your work with our community of readers.  Our editorial committee is always on the lookout for quality, upbeat, and timeless material to educate and inspire belly dance enthusiasts around the world.

Amabella is a belly dance lifestyle magazine that has an upbeat vibe and a positive point of view. Our content is evergreen, filled with timeless articles related to all styles of belly dance, spaces along the dance journey, and points of view. We are seeking 500- 1500 word articles that are informational, inspirational, and image-rich.  Our editors especially like tips lists, how-to’s, history, and informational pieces.

We prefer to receive story proposals rather than completed works, so please send an email query letter detailing your idea. Please include sample images.  If the editors find the subject will work for an upcoming issue, they will contact you.  Please include clips of your previously published material and link to your blog or website.

Amabella is a free digital magazine and operates on an in-kind exchange. Our motto is “Rising Tides Raise All Boats.”  It is our goal to create a fun reading experience while supporting the mission and aims of our fellow belly dance professionals using article marketing as part of their advertising strategy. All articles include hot-links back to the author’s website, store, or digital location of their choice. 

Dancer Gallery Submissions
Our dancer gallery is put together by our editors for each issue to create a theme or point of view.  If you would like to submit your photograph for consideration in a future gallery, please email your print quality image 8” by 10” at 300 dpi in a high quality .jpg, .png, .tiff, or .pdf format.  Please include a paragraph about you, the dancer, in 50 words or less. We will also need the name of the photographer, and please be sure that you own the rights to this image before submitting. All images in Amabella Magazine are hot-linked. If your picture is selected by our editorial team, we will also need your preferred link to a website, blog, store, or social media location.

Are you an artist who uses the “Belly Dancer” as a theme?  We are looking for creative images that use the belly dancer as your subject. Each month we try to feature at least one artist.  To submit your own belly dance-themed artwork, email a 8.5” by 11” at 300dpi in high quality .jpg, .png, .tiff, or .pdf format.  Please include a paragraph of 100 words or less that includes the title, date of creation and media.  All of our images are hot-linked so please also include your preferred link to a website, blog, store, or social media location.
