How To Submit Freelance Pitches To Evie
Have a brilliant idea? We’d love to hear it! Read on for our submission guidelines and general pitching tips.
Please only send pitches; do not submit full drafts of stories/op-eds. We only accept pieces that haven't been published elsewhere.
When preparing your pitch to Evie, you'll need to include the following:
A Sample Headline for the piece.
Where you’ve been published (include links to pieces).
A Paragraph Summary of the piece.
Your angle of the piece in 2-3 sentences.
Links to your relevant social media (Twitter, Instagram).
Sources for the piece that you have access to (provide links).
How To Submit a Freelance Pitch
We have created a convenient form where you can submit your pitch right here.
If you’re hoping for more guidance on what to do (and not to do), read on. These tips will help you get your idea across quickly, clearly, and professionally.
Step 1: Get To Know Evie
We're not like other women's magazines, but you probably know that already. Before submitting a pitch, get familiar with the content and tone of Evie. Read our About Us, and get to know our audience demographic by reading the 3 Women of Evie on our Advertising page. A piece should always be in line with Evie's Mission and should feel original or be unique in its approach.
Step 2: Don't Forget To Include Your Email Address in the Form
Imagine sending in the most brilliant pitch you've ever come up with and us not being able to contact you for publishing! Tragic. Don't forget to include this very important information in the form you fill out for us.
Step 3: Present Your Pitch Clearly
Try to paint the full picture of the piece using as few words as possible.
Step 4: Follow the Submission Guidelines
This ensures that we can review your pitch in a timely way. Pitches that don’t follow these guidelines may not be considered.
Step 5: Finally, Please Be Patient and Don't Get Discouraged If You Don't Hear Back
Please note: We are currently receiving a higher than normal volume of submissions, which has delayed our typical response time.
We have to be selective about what pitches we choose because of the number of submissions we get. Please allow 2 weeks for a response; if you don't hear back within that timeframe, your pitch was not accepted. We currently don't have the capacity to respond to every pitch if it's not a good fit, but if you don't hear back or if you have several pitches rejected, don’t get discouraged! Sometimes it's about timing.
We can't wait to hear from you and hope to see your name on the homepage of Evie in the near future!
