How To Pitch: VegNews

The feature well is wide open at this "vegetarian lifestyle" mag

- October 24, 2012
Circulation: 70,000
Frequency: Bimonthly
Special issues: Summer (July/August), Food (September/October), Veggie Awards (November/December)

Flip through this bimonthly book and you'll find profiles on vegan newsmakers, city guides for herbivores and product roundups, all printed on 75 percent post-consumer, recycled paper.
