The Dirty Spoon is a radio show and online journal about food & beverage culture, curating the latest in music, essays, memoirs, and interviews from chefs, authors, aficionados and aunties from around the world. To get beneath the surface, we don’t look for what’s on the table, but what’s under it, bringing you real stories from the people who shape what we consume. We’re proudly based in Asheville.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
