How To Pitch A Publication That Fits Your Values

This question was posed from @Lauracc8 on Twitter who asks about how to go about pitching her writing to a publication that fits her values.

FIGURE OUT WHO THEIR AUDIENCE IS

  • Be sure you know who you’re pitching.
  • EXAMPLE: You don’t want to send food stories to a fitness blog.
  • Since you’ll be getting paid by them, it’s important you realize what they’re looking for in writers.
  • Your job is to create content that adds value and draws readers to their site.
  • Make sure you’re pitching the right person, and the right content.
