Curve EIC: ‘We want people pitching from all over the world’

Curve, the leading lesbian lifestyle magazine, is undergoing a facelift to celebrate two decades of publication. But it’s not your average renovation: Editor-in-chief Merryn Johns is hoping to ramp up its readership, and thus the number of freelancers who land a byline in the mag.

“There are parts of the world and communities where we don’t have people, so we want people pitching from all over the world,” said Johns. “We want features. We want a great story.”

So if you’re able to filter your pitch through a lesbian lens and have the writing chops to deliver, the whole book is open to your ideas.
