Qualities of a Field Editor

Passion for the Country brand.

Friends must be regular readers and believe in our magazine and what it stands for—sharing personal stories with a community of readers who connect to country values.

Mutual respect.

Field Editors are the best representation what makes our magazine so great, so they need to be respectful of the guidelines.

Willingness to spread the word.

Our Field Editors inspire us with the pictures and stories they share, and we need them to help us find readers like them to introduce to Country magazine.

Open dialogue and communication.

We count on our Field Editors to let us know what we are doing right and what you think we can do to make a better magazine experience.

What we ask of Volunteer Field Editors

Submit three different ideas each year. They could be:

  • Short, true personal essays about country life
  • Enter an image into one of our photo contests
  • Tips or leads about an inspiring person or organization, a feature subject (such as a country church or charming small town), scenic drive or rural travel destination

“Follow” us on Facebook and Instagram.

Share at least one Country post per month to your own social media accounts.

Provide a recent photo of yourself.

Be an active participant in the private Country Field Editors Facebook group. Make new connections with other Field Editors who share the same passion for country life!

Show off your favorite features from our magazines, books and other products to friends, family members and others you meet.

As a thank-you for your time…
