Contribute to Pumpernickel&Rye

Pumpernickel&Rye was created by author Christopher Micheal Lostegaard Mohs to share quick and easy dishes (and a few more complex recipes) that make life in the fast line a bit more enjoyable without sacrificing great family meals. This concept grew and is now what Pumpernickel&Rye is today. As we continue our quest to grow and share amazing eats, we have opened the site up to outside contributors. We want to hear from you! 

Write for Pumpernickel&Rye:

We welcome guest posts by bloggers and writers from around the world. Send us an e-mail at or fill out the form below with “Proposal for guest post” as your subject line. In the body of your e-mail, please provide a summary of your proposed guest post and two samples of your writing and photography (as attached documents or links to your other work on the web).

We are also looking for regular contributors to Pumpernickel&Rye who can provide a specific and continually engaging perspective on quick and easy meals, entertaining, and kitchen design trends for people with limited time, busy lifestyles, and limited kitchen space.

Do you grow your own veggies, fruits and herbs in the country – or an urban garden? Do you frequent the local farmers market for inspiration? Maybe you live in a dense urban area like London or New York City and somehow manage to turn out amazing meals in a tiny kitchen.

Whatever your point of view, if you’re interested in writing for us, we’d love to hear from you. Send us an e-mail at with “Proposal for Pumpernickel&Rye column” as your subject line. In the body of your e-mail, please tell us what you’d like to write about. Also provide two samples of your writing and photography (as attached documents, or links to your other work on the web). One of these writing samples should be a draft first post for your proposed column.

We will read every submission that we get and get back to you within a week.
