Video Details

Cookie is a "lifestyle magazine for parents" looking for articles that go beyond my-kid-changed-my-life. Editor-in-chief Pilar Guzman says, "the idea has to be slamming, or the writing has to be slamming, or ideally both." Cookie accepts plenty of freelance pitches that they fine-tune. But what exactly are the editors looking for?

We sent three writers to pitch their best ideas to Guzman. Watch to see which two stories could land on Cookie's pages.
