Freelancers Welcome in Manhattan

It seems that magazine editors are always inundated with too many pitches to keep track of, and freelancers are always trying to make their submissions stand out.

That’s why we were kind of amazed when Cristina Cuomo, editor-in-chief of Manhattan, said that she has yet to receive an unsolicited pitch. Even more amazing is the fact that 90 percent of the mag’s content is freelance-written. “I love pitches, and getting a good pitch is an editor’s dream,” she said.

Freelancers, it’s time to turn this editor’s dream into a reality. Cuomo is on a self-appointed mission to “give the magazine a personality and a sense of humor.” Think you’ve got what it takes?
