What we’re looking for
If you consider yourself a very good writer who is absolutely passionate about health and wellness then we would love to hear from you.
We would also work with published writers that have a strong journalism background or health experts who have knowledge of the topic they are writing about. We assign stories to new writers or health experts who are new writers.
We prefer to receive a query about the article you would like to write about. However, we are also open to accepting complete articles that fit into the types of stories we like to publish.
How to submit an idea
Please submit a query that includes:
- A fully-fleshed out story idea
- Why the idea is newsworthy
- Sources you intend to interview
- The section you envision the piece for (i.e. Health, Fitness, etc.)
- Why you’re the best person to write it.
- Link to clips (please do not send attachments).
Send your query to [email protected]
If we’re interested in your story idea, we will contact you. Due to the large amount of queries we receive, unfortunately we can’t respond to everyone. If we haven’t contacted you in 6 weeks, please assume that we’re not interested.
