Tailor Your Pitch to The Garden State

New Jersey MonthlyOpportunities for freelancers are plenty at New Jersey Monthly, where over 75 percent of the content is freelance written. Not only that, but you can snag $1 a word at the pub that provides “lifestyle information” to NJ residents. Of course, you don’t have to be from, or live in the state to land a byline. Just make sure your pitch is relevant to Garden State denizens.

New Jersey Monthly especially targets “mid- to upper-class residents throughout the state,” says editor-in-chief Ken Schlager. Thanks to this broad editorial focus, hardly any topics are off-limits.

Get more details on what Schlager is looking for in How To Pitch: New Jersey Monthly. [subscription required]
