The All-Digital Vibe Vixen Needs More Writers

With a big revamp scheduled for a fall 2013 debut, editors at Vibe Vixen need good writers to generate content for their exciting digital cover rollouts and mobile platforms.

Vibe Vixen is one of the few pubs that reach out to black and brown women in their 20s and 30s.  Known for honest content and thoughtful but conversational writing, the former print pub went all digital in April 2013 and is already getting inundated with story pitches — just not the right ones.

“Once I get a writer who works well with me, I’ll take all of their pitches. But right now, I’m passing on a lot of them. We’re looking for fresh voices and people who’ve done this,” said editor Shanel Odum. Wanna know what Odum really wants in content? Read How To Pitch: Vibe Vixen.
