How to Submit Story Ideas to Chicago Magazine and Chicagomag.com

For:

  • Publicists, local business owners, and organizations seeking coverage
  • Freelance writers, photographers, and illustrators
  • Readers with ideas they would like to see us cover

First:

  • Check the print magazine and Chicagomag.com to make sure we cover the topic you have in mind and to see our story format. We do not run stories that lack a Chicago angle, so please do not pitch them.
  • 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.

Then:

Email your pitch—with “story idea” in the subject line—to the proper person(s) as follows:
