Freelance Assignments Flow at Canoe & Kayak

No sections are off-limits to pitches at Canoe & Kayak, where 60 percent of the content is freelance written. Though the editors have a stable of writers they assign to, they are always on the lookout for new voices and ideas — just make sure they’re original.

“Please don’t come to us with an idea that we’ve heard before,” said editor Jeff Moag“Don’t send us the same queries you send the Sunday Travel section. You’ve got to have an angle, and it’s got to pertain to canoeing and kayaking.” The editors themselves are canoe and kayak enthusiasts and take to the field as much as possible, deadline permitting.
