NYMag.com’s Blogs Are Open to Freelance Pitches

While cavorting around the city, it’s a good idea to keep an eye and ear out for the most up and coming trends. Whether its fashion, culture, news, entertainment, sports, or politics, NYMag.com has a blog for it. A good pitch to one of their editors not only can land you a byline, but maybe even an ongoing relationship with the site.

Blog posts are “smart with a bit of wit or humor, and they cater to people who are fanatically interested in that particular topic,” said managing editor Adam Pasick. And there’s a lot of dialogue between the print and online versions, so writing for the website just might earn you some brownie points for editors for the print version, as well.
