Please be sure we have not already covered your proposed topic (or make an argument for why we should cover it again in a new way), and familiarize yourself with the publication so you can pitch by specific story type (e.g., we would prefer a “When in Roam” or “Botany 101” pitch to a general pitch). Thanks!
