New Writers Welcome at Shape


It’s time to apply the bikini bod workout to the pitch, journos. If your pitch is fresh, editors at Shape are interested: “We absolutely are open to new writers,” said deputy editor Jeanine Detz.

The mag, with its 1.6 million circulation, is dedicated to helping women shape their lives — no matter what their shape.

“We are trying to give readers practical ways to work health, fitness and nutrition into their lives,” said Detz. “We’re not just reaching for the person who’s super fit or the person who’s not-so-fit; we really offer information for everyone on the spectrum.”
