All information for How To Pitch comes directly from the magazines themselves. To be featured in the column, an outlet must meet our criteria, which includes but is not limited to the following:
- It must accept freelance pitches.
- The pay rate must be respectable or in line with industry standards. (No, $100 for 15,000 words is not "respectable.")
- There must be a fair amount of writing opportunities available for freelancers.
- A senior-level editor must be available for an interview.
