Score $1 a Word at Cosmopolitan for Latinas

Launched in May of 2012, Cosmopolitan for Latinas bills itself as “the spirit of Cosmo with a Latina sensibility and the Latina voice.” Although half of the pub is freelance-written, editors say they would love to receive more ideas.  ”At this point, [I] haven’t received a ton of pitches,” said managing editor Jessica Rodriguez.

Anything with a unique angle will catch the editors’ eyes, and a good example from the latest issue is a piece called “I Won’t Date a Latin Guy.” “That’s an actual real topic that a lot of Latinas discuss, and it’s sort of an unspoken, but never really verbalized or articulated idea… We’re really trying to bring those issues to the table and really have an honest conversation about them,” said Rodriguez.
