How To Get Published In Real Simple

RealSimpleReal Simple, the monthly women’s lifestyle mag, is on the lookout for fresh new writers. The pub covers a broad range of topics, everything from health and beauty to parenting, food and fashion, among others.

The mag is 60 percent freelance written and pays $2 a word. So what section is right for new pitches? Deputy editor Noelle Howey has some advice for writers looking to break in:

Though most of Real Simple is pitchable, the FOB is particularly freelancer friendly. Naturally, Howey advises new freelancers to start there. For “Health,” editors are looking for a wide range of topics: Nutrition, fitness, hygiene, metabolism, weight loss, skincare and more are all covered here and, if you can weave a pitch that tackles multiple health-related subjects at once, even better.
