Boston Globe Magazine

Journos covering local and national trends can land a byline at The Boston Globe Magazine, the Sunday supplement to Boston’s leading daily paper, The Boston Globe. Over 75 percent of the magazine is freelance-written, and editors are eager to work with new writers who are pitching fresh meat.

A redesign in March of 2012 updated the look of the magazine and added a few new columns to the front-of-book section called “Boston Uncommon.” The magazine aims to speak to a diverse audience — men and women of many economic and educational backgrounds –- and focus on Greater Boston and occasionally New England. “Readers tell us that The Boston Globe Magazine is one of the most popular sections of the Sunday Globe,” said editor-in-chief Susanne Althoff.

Editors aren’t interested in random pitches, however, so make sure to tie your ideas into the theme of the magazine. For more info, read How To Pitch: The Boston Globe Magazine.
