Have Fun With Your Pitches for This Mag

Acquired by Meredith Corp. earlier this year, FamilyFun Magazine is undergoing a major redesign. But that doesn’t change its focus as the go-to source for fun ideas when it comes to parenting. You won’t find your typical nutrition advice here, but you will find “Fun Ways to Get Your Child to Eat Vegetables.”

Senior editor Debra Immergut is always on the lookout for new writers, especially for travel, tech/media, parties and food. She also warns freelancers not to get discouraged. In the past, pitches that didn’t initially make the cut were published up to two years later when the magazine was ready for them. “You never know when you might plant the seed of an idea that will eventually take root,” she said.
