How to Pitch: Down East, the Magazine of Maine

Down-East-article

Down East, “the Magazine of Maine,” covers more than just lobsters, beer and farming. It spotlights the local dining, art and culture scenes — and even runs investigative pieces that have actually changed state legislature.

The mag’s readership is 60 percent out of state, including those who flock to Maine for the summer. So here’s how to get editors to consider your pitches:

Publicists can help in two areas: Down East is actively seeking more “cool stuff that’s made in Maine,” especially for its new December gift guide issue. Send your pitch in by August to make the December issue and be sure to include paid return postage as the magazine has a strict policy against accepting gifts. Publicists can also pitch successful Maine businesses as potential profiles for the “Making It in Maine” column.

To hear more about the mag, including contact details, read: How To Pitch: Down East.
