Pitches should be 1-3 paragraphs with your article headline and the direction your piece will go, including your stance or POV. If you’re pitching a list, please include 2-3 of your list headers to give an idea of how it will go and an approx word count. We also accept full drafts, especially welcome for personal essays so we have a good idea if it will be a fit for our audience.

Please also include 2-3 clips when pitching if you have them, though it’s not a requirement that you have been previously published.

Interested? Send pitches to the managing editor at [email protected] and please include PITCH: in your subject line. Please allow up to 2 weeks before hearing back — thank you!
