How To Pitch: Glamour

This esteemed women's glossy seeks pitches on careers, relationships and health.

Circulation: 2.3 million

Special issue: The "Women of the Year" issue runs every December

Background: There's something alluring about a woman who has impeccable style, who can rock a high-waisted trouser and nude lip like she just floated off the runways of New York Fashion Week. What's even more impressive, though, is a well-kept woman who can also debate the complexities of the Syrian migration crisis and American immigration reform. And that woman, most likely, is a Glamour reader.

"The Glamour woman is unique," says senior editor Emily Mahaney. "She has an interest in fashion and beauty, but there's so much more to her. She's interested in what's happening in her world, how to make a difference in her world and how to get ahead in her career. She's a well-rounded woman, and what she gets from Glamour is a magazine that's going to cater to all those different areas of her life in a really smart, modern way."

Glamour, Condé Nast's darling women's mag, has long catered to the smart, stylish woman, but in recent years editors have ramped up key content areas even further, including work and money advice. "Obviously, there are more women running businesses and starting businesses than ever," says Mahaney, "and young readers talk to us all the time about how their careers are a very important aspect of their lives. So we are trying to deliver better and more career content than ever before."
