How To Pitch: Portland Monthly

Pitch 'smart, authoritative and entertaining' pieces to break into this city pub

By Kate Parham - February 7, 2013

Circulation: 57,952
Frequency: Monthly
Special issues: None, although each year the magazine produces service packages like "Best Restaurants," "Best Doctors" and "Best Neighborhoods."

Background: Portland Monthly was launched in November 2003 under Saga City Media with very much the same mission it maintains today: to inspire readers to explore the vibrant and rapidly growing metropolis they call home. The editorial direction has remained intact, despite several changes at the top of the masthead, and the mag remains committed to providing readers with invaluable, entertaining service packages and thoughtful insights on the city and the people behind it.

The How to Pitch series is worth its weight in gold. In just the first month I'd already benefited enough to consider the cost of joining well worth it. -- Gaen Murphree
