Impress Men’s Health With Your Multimedia Skills

Men’s Health’s website is not only open to freelance pitches, but the pay rate is also on par with other big-name mags. If you can show off your shooting, writing and filming skills in a pitch, it’ll have a better chance of making the cut.

“The more things you can bring to the package, the more likely you are to get into Men’s Health,” said editor Peter Moore. Plus, you don’t have to be an industry insider to write for the mag (though it does help). Keeping up with new health studies and breaking science news will help you find ideas and impress the editors.
