The pages of Inc. magazine, the publication for entrepreneurs that has been around since 1979, got a makeover this past summer. Although its core content hasn’t changed (features on tech startups, innovation, manufacturing and product design are all still included), the mag has done away with its traditional front-of-the-book and features well. Instead, articles are slotted into one of four sections in the book.

And fortunately for freelancers, just about every section is open to pitches, excluding columns written by entrepreneurs and venture capitalists (unless you happen to be one). Executive editor, Bobbie Gossage, explains one key entry point:

Gossage says the easiest way to break in is with a “Tip Sheet,” the article that starts off every section. It’s a trendy, how-to story usually accompanied by a relevant quiz or a fun sidebar (the Tip Sheet for the “Money” section in the February 2014 issue is about what buyers and sellers need to know about the booming business-for-sale market; for the “Innovate” section, it’s on unlocking creativity in one’s brain and one’s company).

While Inc. occupies the same shelf space of other business publications like EntrepreneurFast Company and Forbes, the magazine has a distinction that separates itself from its competitors.

“We are a magazine about people who are incredibly passionate and have the will to start a business from scratch,” said Alexandra Brez, managing editor. ”We are different because of our sophistication, as well as our connection to and interest in community events. And we are a very likable brand. People are proud to be featured by us.”
