Other tips: 

  • Do your research! Before sending in your idea, make sure it is the kind of story we would publish. Read through our previous issues and content to get a good sense of what we’re after. 
  • Show us you’ve also researched the topic and idea you’re planning on writing about. If you’re proposing a record review, show us your close knowledge of the artist and the context of their work. If you’re planning to write a feature, what experts will you reach out to for comment? 
  • Please do not send us final drafts of your work as a pitch. 
  • Please do not pitch us ideas that you’ve yet to hear back about from other outlets.
