What members are saying
After reading the How To Pitch article...I pitched my story idea to the EW editor and got the pitch accepted. My first big-time national publication assignment! I had a great experience dealing with the editors there and my article ran in the February 11 issue. Another mediabistro.com-inspired success story. - Michael Berick "Just wanted to add another great How To Pitch anecdote. Overtime just had two features fall through and asked me to write those, too (with a deadline of a week from now). So tally six assignments from one How To Pitch inquiry in the period of a few weeks." - Eric Butterman
I was totally new to the magazine world so I had no idea how to pitch my stories (or who to pitch them to). Your How to Pitch series provides invaluable information—especially for a rookie—and allowed me to sell four features and a front-of-book bit to Spin and Details ... I've since left my day job and am writing full time. -- Rodger Cambria
