Since its launch, More has stayed true to its mission to explore “what it’s like to be a woman of style and substance right now.” Under its current EIC Lesley Jane Seymour, the mag has expanded its focus to include women ages 35 to 60, turbo-charged its design and expanded fashion and beauty coverage. The pub has also added some work- and money-related service features, because “the current economic times demand it,” said managing editor Ila Stanger.

Seventy percent of the pub is freelance written, and all sections are open to pitches. The best bet for writers looking to break into the book is to pitch a personal essay. Just remember: More‘s readership is “sophisticated, well-educated, affluent and self-confident, with interests as wide-ranging as their achievements,” said Stanger, so make sure you strike the right tone when pitching.
