How do I reach out to my managing editor?

Modified on Tue, 28 Feb 2023 at 11:57 AM

The managing editor is usually your point-of-contact on a publication and the best person to reach out to if you have any questions about the publication's content strategy or process.

Once you're staffed, we recommend sending a quick message to your managing editor to introduce yourself and to show that you're excited to get started on the publication.


Not sure what to really include in the message? Here are our suggestions:

  1. Short bio: Highlight your topics of expertise, skills, and what formats you're most comfortable with.

  2. Availability: It'll be helpful for your managing editor to know when you'll be free to work on stories. They can keep you in mind for any future work.

  3. Questions: If you have any starting questions about the publication, this is your chance. Additionally, let the managing editor know that if they have any questions about your background, you're more than happy to answer.

Please keep in mind that our managing editors are handling more than one publication and communicating with multiple contributors, so it may take some time before they're able to get back to you. Don't be afraid of following up!
