Table of Contents
Redbook editor-in-chief Stacy Morrison sits down with four writers eager to break into this general interest magazine for women in "the grown-up stage of life," and offers feedback on their story ideas.
When women outgrow fashion, bridal, and beauty magazines, they grow into Redbook. The 104-year-old magazine boasts a storied history (Margaret Mead was an early contributor), and despite its advanced age, manages to remain ahead of the curve for its 30- to 40-something female readership. It's wide-open to features, so long as they center upon the wants, needs and experiences of adult women as they navigate motherhood, home ownership, professional demands, and more.
See which pitches worked, find out why or why not, and learn how an editor really thinks so you can improve your pitching success rate.
