Editorial Calendar Guide
A great way to increase your chance of a successful pitch is to work with a magazine's planned issue themes. Our Editorial Calendar Guide is a compendium of about 50 titles' editorial plans, which you can use to help select your pitch targets. Whether you're trying to break a specific book and need to know its calendar or have a unique specialty and want to know when different mags will be covering it, this resource will be invaluable.
Issues are listed below by cover date. Remember that there's always a lead time, from a few weeks for quick-moving weeklies to several months or more for long-lead monthlies and quarterlies. The Editorial Calendar Guide is a great starting point, but be sure to further investigate writers' guidelines for any publications you're trying to pitch.
