Despite Paper’s Troubles, Boston Globe Mag Still Looking for Good Writers

Boston Globe Magazine

The Boston Globe may be up for sale, but, until its parent company accepts a winning bid, the show must go on. And that means its Sunday supplement, The Boston Globe Magazine, is still eager to work with writers to cover a wide range of newsy local topics and industry trends. The weekly uses freelancers for over three-quarters of its content.

A redesign in March of 2012 updated the look of the magazine and added a few new columns to the front-of-book section called “Boston Uncommon.” The magazine aims to speak to a diverse audience — men and women of many economic and educational backgrounds –- and focus on Greater Boston and occasionally New England.” Readers tell us that The Boston Globe Magazine is one of the most popular sections of the Sunday Globe,” said editor-in-chief Susanne Althoff.

Boston Bylines For New Yorkers

Landing a byline at a regional pub when you’re an out-of-towner takes some effort, but as long as you keep in mind the audience you’re writing for, editors are usually open-minded.

Take The Boston Globe Magazine, for example. Editor-in-chief Susanne Althoff asks freelancers to remember that the Globe magazine is, at root, a local magazine. “That doesn’t mean we’re not interested in national trend stories,” she said. “But it’s got to be a trend that’s of interest to readers in the Boston area, or in the greater Boston/New England area.”
