Land $2 Per Word at Ladies’ Home Journal

Freelancers can land a cool $2 a word with a successful pitch to Ladies’ Home Journal. The mag underwent a redesign for the digital age in March of 2012, incorporating much more reader input in its editorial content. Though editors mostly assign stories to their stable of freelancers, many of them started out with a pitch.

“We welcome pitches because we’re always looking for new [writers],” said Lorraine Glennon, senior books and articles editor.

To go along with the redesign, editorial content has shifted towards first person stories, like “The Divorced Mom’s Guide to Online Dating” which told the story of a newly divorced mother of two who decides to venture into the online dating world.

So, how can you land a byline in this newsstand staple? Get all the details and editors’ contact info in How To Pitch: Ladies’ Home Journal. [Mediabistro AvantGuild subscription required]
