The Knot Wants Your Summer Wedding Stories

One of the ripest areas for freelance pitches at The Knot is the “Real Weddings” section. So, if you found yourself being dragged to yet another ceremony this summer, at least you can turn it into a feature byline worth up to $1/word. “We’re really interested in real couples’ stories,” said executive editor Rebecca Dolgin, “right down to the centerpieces and how they personalized the program.”

Besides pitching the national print mag, The Knot is also open to ideas for its regional pubs and website, which gets 3 million uniques a month. And if you want to avoid the slush pile, make sure to familiarize yourself with the community: “Their voice is really infused in our content across the platform,” said Dolgin.
