Video Pitch Slam 1-on-1: Esquire

One articles editor, four would-be contributors and a video camera -- watch to see if stories get sold!

By Rebecca L. Fox - July 23, 2007
In this month's "Pitch Slam 1-on-1: Esquire," articles editor David Katz sits down with four writers eager to break into the magazine and offers feedback on their story ideas.

Esquire turns 75 this fall and is flourishing under the editorship of David Granger, scoring seven ASME nominations in 2007. His mag is targeted to "men who are a little more ambitious, a little more curious, a little more engaged," says articles editor David Katz, and features some of the most engaging and aggressive feature writing in the business today. Esquire relies heavily on both contract writers and freelancers to fill both the FOB and the feature well, and editors are "always looking for new writers with strong voices and unique ideas," Katz says. (For specifics, see our AvantGuildHow to Pitch: Esquire article.)
