Discover Is Looking For Multimedia Pitches

Discover

Discover magazine is on the hunt for freelancers. The monthly has recently undergone some transformations (relocating their headquarters, changing up their editorial staff) and are looking for pitches on technology, physics, chemistry and other sciences.

With 95 percent of the pub’s content generated by freelancers, editor-in-chief Stephen C. George says that he needs writers for several media platforms:

Discover seeks pitches for its website, especially for “The Crux” and “Visual Science” (stories on images and video). Editors are also looking for “great multimedia content that we can put online or in digital editions,” said George.

Furthermore, Discover recently made a foray into long-form, digital eBook singles. The series is called In Depth and stories are available as Kindle Singles. The editorial team had a goal of two long-form digitals for 2013 and “mission accomplished,” said George. As a result, “we are actively looking for longer-form stories,” he said. A bonus is that Discover shares a percentage of the sales of its Kindle Singles with its writers.
