VegNews welcomes freelance pitches and is open to all ideas related to the plant-based lifestyle. Help us dazzle VegNews readers with the most scintillating meat-free content, which all starts with a great pitch. We have a wonderful, highly skilled network of contributors and provide an amazing writing and editing experience. Here’s how to make it happen!
A few tips for getting published in VegNews:
1. Know the VegNews brand
Read it, study it, learn it, know it. Get a sense of where your writing will fit in best, and pitch us your vision. Do you live in a hidden vegan paradise and are interested in penning a VegEscape, or do you have a great idea for a compelling feature story? It’s amazing how many queries we receive from writers who haven’t read the publication, so please familiarize yourself with our brand and content.
2. Keep your pitches concise
Tease us with your tantalizing ideas, and we’ll come running. We just don’t have time to read 10-page story ideas! Please note that we never publish unsolicited pieces.
3. Communicate via email
We are always connected, and email is our preferred method of communication for initial pitches. Our team receives hundreds of writing inquiries every week and will get back to you as quickly as we can. Whether you are a seasoned or aspiring writer, there are many areas freelancers can contribute to VegNews, including:
- Restaurant reviews
- Back-page pieces
Contributions to VegNews magazine are typically paid, but contributions to VegNews.com are currently not. In addition to working with a top-notch team of editors, as a VegNews contributor, you’ll also receive a few perks:
