Peppermint is a soon-to-be launched lifestyle destination for older adults who want to learn and connect with their peers. Think of it as the cool version of AARP—these readers don’t want to be talked to as “old people.” They’re educated, vibrant, and interested in the world around them. Our key verticals are Food & Home, Healthy Living, Style & Beauty, Entertainment, Tech, Travel, and Creative Arts. We’re looking for 400-600 word stories written in AP Style. New interviews/sources aren’t mandatory, but proper attribution is important.

Examples of stories that are right for us:
These 80s (or 60s or 70s) Movies Are Still Surprisingly Rewatchable
Family Reunion: Travel Experiences Designed for Multiple Generations
Why TV's Depiction Of the Over-60 Set Has Changed Dramatically
6 Video Games That Grown-Ups Will Actually Enjoy
Sure, It's Trendy, But Is the R.V. Life for You?


We're looking for writers who can apply an "older adult" lens on lifestyle topics without hitting readers over the head with it. Writers should have a basic knowledge of AP Style (we'll have access to the online stylebook). Writers should also know how to attribute facts, quotes, or studies. We have stories we can assign, but welcome pitches as well.

How to Apply

Please email with your resume or Linkedin profile, as well as at least two writing samples.
