Hi! Any tips on how to pitch an editor with your article idea?


  • Hello! So... the system I always use is this:

    'Hello *insert name of comissioning editor*,

    Line about why I love their publication.

    Line about previous publications I've written for & link to my previous work.

    Then I go into my proposed pitch:

    - Proposed headline
    - Introduction: what points will I make
    Paragraph 1: main point
    Paragraph 2: argument
    Paragraph 3: Another point to back-up argument trying to make
    Conclusion: summary

    Then I thank them for their time and sign off! Hope this helps you.
