theretrieverjournalThe Retriever Journal is published bimonthly in February, April, June, August, October, and December.

Our journal emphasizes the time-honored tradition of hunting with dogs and concentrates exclusively on the retrieving breeds. We strive to give our readers informative features and columns, nostalgia, and humor, all written by talented and knowledgeable outdoor writers. Because The Retriever Journal is targeted to experienced dog owners and hunters, those who write for us must also be experienced. Queries welcome with SASE (e-mail queries welcome; phone queries discouraged). Queries should state subject, proposed length, photo type (we prefer digital) and number.
We try to respond to queries in three to four weeks, unsolicited manuscripts in six to eight weeks.
