NYMag.com, the online destination for New York magazine, covers news, culture, fashion and pyschology with the same witty, urbane voice that declared itself over four decades ago, epitomized by Tom Wolfe‘s legendary, novella-length “Radical Chic.”
There is no corner of NYMag.com closed to accepting a pitch, but to have a fair shot, you should heed the advice of deputy editor Jebediah Reed:
As a general rule, Reed suggested, “a freelance pitch should always bring something fresh to the table, something you have that other publications don’t and writers haven’t said or reported yet. Any pitch that does that, that brings something fresh and valuable and smart to the editor’s attention, is a good pitch.” Everything on the family of sites if pitchable and, with so many packages running at any given time, there’s a chance to not only be published, but also build a relationship with editors if your ideas are on point.
