To submit a story idea
Chicago magazine looks to cover the city of Chicago and the greater Chicago area with indepth and thoughtful reporting and writing. Every story we publish must have a focus on Chicago or be important to our readers.

To pitch a story, please 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.

Please be sure to 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:

For food and drink, email Amy Cavanaugh

For art, music, and culture, email Tal Rosenberg

For news, business, and health, email Lauren Williamson

For home and fashion, email Tal Rosenberg 

For photography, email Michael Zajakowski 

For all other inquiries, email Terrance Noland
