Curve EIC: ‘We want people pitching from all over the world’

Curve, the leading lesbian lifestyle magazine, is undergoing a facelift to celebrate two decades of publication. But it’s not your average renovation: Editor-in-chief Merryn Johns is hoping to ramp up its readership, and thus the number of freelancers who land a byline in the mag.

“There are parts of the world and communities where we don’t have people, so we want people pitching from all over the world,” said Johns. “We want features. We want a great story.”

So if you’re able to filter your pitch through a lesbian lens and have the writing chops to deliver, the whole book is open to your ideas.

Advocate for the LGBT Community

The Advocate started out as a mimeographed newsletter informing L.A. denizens of the latest LGBT happenings, but has grown into an international glossy. And its heavily-trafficked website is a great place for new writers to start pitching.

Advocate.com garners a million uniques a month, and just like the print version, is always on the lookout for features, profiles, commentary and analysis that speak to the gay and lesbian community.

“We’re really the only magazine in the space. There are lesbian-specific publications, there are trans-specific publications, there are gay men-specific publications,” said editor-in-chief Matthew Breen, “but in terms of an LGBT magazine, we really don’t have competitors.”
