Pitch the Magazine
Thank you for your interest in writing for Edible New Orleans. We welcome submissions, pitches and story ideas, especially those that dig into what this city eats and why. We are not interested in restaurant openings for the print magazine. Rather, we hunger for bits of forgotten food history; a pho that is worth the trip; an artisan, cook, or chef who makes his/her bitters or boudin; a factory or store with culinary specialty, big or small; a trend that is making a difference in the way the city thinks about food; or an essay on a revelatory culinary experience. We take pitches for both features and department stories.
To pitch to us, send one or two well-thought out paragraphs describing your idea, along with two or three clips of the tone you would write in. These can be links to previously published work. Note that Edible New Orleans’s style is high-energy with a strong sense of humor, so please send writing samples that show you are capable of going beyond the straight news story.
Pitch the Blog
We love hearing from members of the community about their fundraisers, farmers markets, food events, and new projects. For consideration for publication on the Edible blog, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the word BLOG somewhere in the subject line. The following is essential – who, what, when, – a list of all dates and times as well as the names (check the spelling!) and titles of everyone involved. Please include this information either as a Word doc or in the body of the email. Also, please include an image that is your to use (at least 657 pixels across).
We welcome submissions for blog posts from bloggers and other writers. It can be a great way to increase your audience. However, we cannot pay for work published on the blog. Follow the same submission guidelines as above.
