Pitch ‘Buzzy’ Stories for Natural Health‘s Front-of-Book

natural-health-article

Natural Health aims to be the “trusted source for the latest news and trends in integrative medicine and an overall balanced life.” The pub has recently undergone a redesign, complete with a new lifestyle focus, location (offices moved from the West Coast to New York) and editorial staff.

The revamp means there are plenty of opportunities for writers who want to become fixed players in the freelance roster. Pitchable topics include integrative health, natural beauty, fitness, travel and even natural pet-care tips. So which section should freelancers pitch first? The FOB is always a good place to start:

Freelance-friendly sections include the front-of-book’s newsy health stories that highlight something buzzy in the natural-health world. “Spotlight” features a 1,200- to 1,500-word health service piece that’s based on new research or a change in traditional thinking, and there’s also a new one-page pet story that runs every month. There are typically one or two features assigned to freelancers each month (at around 1,800 words), so those are open for pitches, too.
