Tips on pitching from the Guardian’s incoming features editor

Jessica Reed shares tips for pitching stories to her, though they’re applicable to anyone interested in pitching stories to outlets, as well a list of stories she’d like to see. “I want to know what you already know about the story you have in mind, what you don’t know yet, and who you want to talk to to find out. I want to know, most of all, why you’re interested in the topic at hand. I want your first email to be concise (four paragraphs or so), and I want it to give me an idea of who you are,” she writes.
