Earn $1 A Word and Up at This Foodie Pub


EatingWell strives to be the place ‘where good taste meets good health.’ This food-centric pub is all about healthy recipes, nutrition news and interesting narratives on the origins of our food.

The mag is looking for investigative pieces on nutrition and science-based articles on subjects like food sustainability. New writers who manage to break into the book often establish fruitful relationships with editors there:

Features need to be well researched and thorough; a news angle or a hook to a trend also helps. “Nourish” is an essay column about how food nourishes us in unexpected ways. It is open to top literary talent as well as new writers. Travel stories are welcomed only if they have a clear tie-in to health and come with easy recipes that meet the EatingWell nutrition guidelines. What the editors prefer are pitches in which the writer can show a personal connection to a particular locale and its cuisine.

For editors’ contact info and more tips on breaking into the book, read: How To Pitch: EatingWell.
