This Week's Freelance Opportunities for Freelancers Like Me
Kelly Glass (she/her) @kellygwriter: Coming soon, @parentsmagazine is launching a new sub-brand focused on Black families, and I want some original reporting!
I’m looking for pitches on Black history and the power of Black families that resist the white gaze. Rates start at $250. Here’s how to pitch me. First, give me the working headline in the subject line. Be sure to lead with PITCH and a colon first so your email doesn’t get buried. I love to see how writers are gonna write. Give me a bit of that in the first couple of sentences. Feeling fancy? Write the first couple of sentences as the lede of the piece you’re proposing. Next, what are you going to report on? Make sure it’s also clear here why this story you’re proposing is important. What’s the takeaway? How are you going to tackle the reporting? Link me to a study, tell me what type of sources you have in mind, etc. Now, I got this far, so I want to know about you! Who are you and what have you done before? Give me the receipts! Clips or website/portfolio, please. Send to me at kelly.glass@Meredith.com, and thank you for trusting me with your work!
