Want to know what makes a good pitch? Read this guide from the Nieman Journalism Lab before you hit "send." Inverse editors welcome pitches from people without a lot of experience, and are happy to develop ideas with new freelancers.
We do expect pitches to include:
- A clear sense of what the writer intends to report out.
- What they think is newsworthy about their story.
- How they intend to construct the story (narrative, oral history, guide, list, etc.)
- What multimedia ideas they have in mind (original photography, audio interviews, etc.)
- The hypothesis or even thesis ("nut graf") if they are that far along.
- Word count is appreciated but not binding and your editor may change it.
Who to contact:
Science & Innovation — Email senior science editor Sarah Sloat, at sarah at inverse com, with "Mind/Body Freelance Story Pitch" as the subject line.
