Posting this in case anyone out there is interested! Here’s a thread on how you can pitch Buzzfeed Books. It’s easier than you may think. What we’re looking for: Roundups; Quizzes TV/movie + books content; Anything out of the box (Example!…) You can email pitches. Here’s what’s helpful to include: Headline/frame A solid idea on the format (or link to another post like it); Beats/books we can expect; Subject example: “BOOKS PITCH: 25 Books My Dog Loved And So Will You” Where to pitch: If this idea is book-related, CC me: farrah[dot]penn[at]buzzfeed[dot]com The payment range is $100-$300 depending on length/format.

OkayAfrica is commissioning and assigning African arts and culture stories. 

The stories should be about people based on the continent or in the Diaspora, doing big things in film, fashion, art, photography, literature, etc.  Email with 2-3 samples to previously written work, preferably in the realm of arts and culture. Solid, well thought-out ideas will trump not having published clips. Looking specifically for African stories, or Africans based in the US, so the writers should be in one of these two places.  $250 per story. (via Sonia Newsletter)
