Pitch Timely New York Stories to JET

Launched back in 1951, JET has been the authority on news in the black community for decades. With a loyal readership of over 7 million, freelancers with the right pitch will get prime real estate for their bylines.

Since the pub is largely news based, editors are looking for local stories from stringers who live in different parts of the country and can report on influential, headline-making topics in their own areas. They want to hear about news-making trends, like the outbreak of bigotry among fans at high school sporting events. So if you spot a breaking topic, pitch it with a vision for what the story will look like. “I’m always on the lookout for new trends at both the regional and national level,” said editor-in-chief Mitzi Miller.

Jet Wants News Stories About The Black Community

Since launching in 1951, Jet has sought out to be the authority on breaking information in the black community — but this is not your mama’s Jet. Freelancers who fail to do their journalistic due diligence will be swiftly sniffed out.

“If you just send me whatever and it’s not very well thought-out and it makes no sense for my magazine, you’re wasting my time. And I remember that,” says editor-in-chief Mitzi Miller. “A lot of things have changed recently with Jet in terms of our tone and the type of stories that we’re now covering, and I can tell when writers have truly been paying attention and when they’re just like, ‘Oh, I remember when my mom used to read Jet.’”

Since pitching is your one opportunity to make an impression, get to the point of the story succinctly and swiftly, advises Miller. ”Make it impossible for me to say no.”
