A place for you to share, win and belong.

As a Michigan Country Lines reader, not only are you the heart of your co-op, you are the heart of this magazine. The recipes, memories, photos and stories you share are what make our magazine one-of-a-kind. It brings us together as a community, and we want to encourage more of it. Thanks to the new MI Co-op Community page on countrylines.com, it’s now easier than ever to share your content and to read content submitted by other members. Better yet, we don’t expect you to work for free. Many submissions are rewarded with cash and bill credits. Just look for the blue ribbon—and we’ll look forward to your content.

1Monthly Recipe Contest And MI Co-op Kitchen

If you’re in need of some food inspiration, look no further than MI Co-op Kitchen––our online cooking community. MI Co-op Kitchen is an interactive space where you can share your recipes and food ideas with other like-minded members. Submit a recipe for our monthly contest and you could win a $50 bill credit and have your recipe published. A winner is selected every month.

2Where In Michigan Is This? Our Mystery Photo Contest

Have you traveled much in the mitten state? If so, it could pay off. Correctly identify our mystery photo and you could win a $50 bill credit. A new “Where in Michigan Is This?” mystery photo is published in our January, March, May, July/August, September and November/December Michigan Country Lines issues. Each correct guess is placed into a drawing and one lucky winner is selected.

3I Remember–Members Share Their Fondest Memories

The best stories come from the people who’ve lived them, so share yours with us. If we publish your story, you receive a $50 check! Just send us your memory up to 200 words; photos are always a great addition!

4Our New Guest Column

We know many of our members are talented and have great ideas– so we invite you to share that talent in Country Lines! We will pay $150 for stories we publish. Let the ideas flow! Stories could be about a significant or memorable event, a person in your life, life lessons learned, educational topics, Michigan recreational activities– and more! Please keep stories to approximately 350 words. Photos are always welcome!
