How To Pitch: Spirituality and Health
Soul meets body in this recently revamped, freelancer-friendly mag- August 15, 2013
Circulation: Just under 100,000 and steadily growing
Special issues: Two specialty publications: Practice in August and Sustainable You in December
Background: One year after a new editorial team took the helm, 15-year-old Spirituality and Health is still the go-to source for the best reads on East-meets-West spirituality and body-meets-soul wellness. The newly redesigned pub features timely coverage of hot topics in spirituality and wellness and has a commitment to great writers and in-depth reporting. "We continue to be committed to our mission of exploring the frontiers of spirituality and health, and we have moved into environmental and humanitarian issues, as well," editor-in-chief Karen Bouris said of the changes.
Filling a niche between religious/spiritual and health-focused pubs, the bimonthly's target audience is primarily women over 35 who are deeply knowledgeable about healthy living and spiritual fulfillment. "In the same issue, we might have a progressive Catholic talking about women's rights, a mindfulness practice from a Zen Buddhist practitioner, and a Wiccan talking about earth-based spirituality -- or natural cures for insomnia, raw food for firing up your libido, and aloe for better digestion," explained Bouris. As such, the magazine is looking to partner with writers who know the ins and outs of wellness, fitness, spiritual practices and the environment. While the magazine covers faith and religion, the "spiritual but not necessarily religious" community is a bigger focus, said Bouris.
