“We’re always looking for new, talented writers,” says Washingtonian‘s features editor Denise Wills.
The magazine is “the region’s top source of information for dining, shopping, entertainment and personalities,” and covers the entire D.C. metropolitan area, including Maryland and Virginia. The pub has a broad scope, but as long as your pitch has a Washington angle, you have a good chance of piquing the editors’ interest.
“We cover a wide range of subjects, but… it either is something that helps you understand Washington better or tells you how to live better here,” said Wills.
Washingtonian editors are hungry for well-reported features about culture, politics, local personalities, Washington institutions and life in the capital region. Editors are also seeking service stories: “We could especially use some more pitches on home design and beauty,” said Wills.
