Land $2 a Word at Good Housekeeping

Journos looking to land a byline at a major magazine, look no further. Ever since Good Housekeeping was first published in 1885, it has served as a trusted authority for women on everything from beauty to nutrition. To this day, it remains America’s largest women’s magazine, flanked by a readership of 21 million, a recent New York Times-bestselling book (7 Years Younger, which hit stands in January 2013) and the equally lofty reputation of the Good Housekeeping seal.

At the top of 2013, the mag underwent an extreme makeover, complete with an updated logo and content revamp. ”We did a lot of research, and we wanted to make sure we were keeping pace with our readers’ lives. We wanted to give them more fun in the magazine,” explained executive editor Janet Soroto.

And, with those recent changes, there are now multiple sections ripe for freelance pitching. For writers’ guidelines and editors’ contact info, read How To Pitch: Good Housekeeping.
