Background: It's a milestone year for the Washingtonian. Founded in 1965, it celebrates its 50th anniversary in October and also holds the distinction of being one of the first -- and therefore one of the oldest -- city magazines in the country.
It's a lifestyle guide for cosmopolitan folks in the DMV -- that's the acronymous nickname for metro Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia -- covering the rhythms and stories of life that emerge there. Annual features like "100 Very Best Restaurants," "Top Doctors" and "Great Places to Live" are additional information goldmines for readers and city residents.
"One thing that can be helpful to keep in mind is that our readers live throughout the Washington region, so we're always in the market for stories that'll draw in people from the suburbs and from the city," said articles editor Kristen Hinman. Freelancers interested in writing for the mag should be intimately familiar with the spirit of the city because the district simmers in a unique blend of coexisting dynamics.
