While I LOVE sharing contact information of my editorial Pitch requests, I know that many of you have never landed a good pitch. So, I recently pitched an authentic article especially for Architectural Digest that got an almost immediate response.
I think it's important to share what is successful and what's not. And it's important to also note that a good pitch gets responded to immediately. ~ Darralynn
Here's the Pitch that got the assignment.

|Thanks, Rachel! Moving you to BCC. This sounds interesting, Darralynn! Can you let me know what kind of images of the wallpaper or hotel exist? I worry that we may not be able to cover if there aren't any professional images, so let me know if you've come across anything else. Many thanks for the pitch!
