+ Write a brief (1- to 3-paragraph max) pitch, stressing why your idea is different, newsworthy, and compelling for our readers. If you are a writer, photographer, or illustrator, please include samples of your work.
+ Pitch early. The print magazine is monthly; we finalize story lineups a few months before the cover date.
