Pitch Bay Area Culture to San Francisco

You don’t have to live in the Bay Area, but you do have to be familiar with its culture in order to pitch San Francisco magazine. And with new FOB sections ranging from politics to food to fashion, there is ample opportunity for any freelancer to write for this regional glossy, no matter where you’re from.

“It’s big-city journalism on a number of levels. We have in-depth feature reporting on civic issues, social justice, politics and personalities in power positions. Then, we cover the service side: how to live the good life in a vibrant, exciting, constantly changing city. Then there’s our food, style and cultural coverage,” said editor-in-chief Jon Steinberg.
