Open call to journalists across the land! Prevention.com is looking for creative, surprising, informative, provocative feature pitches that would (most likely) run as online exclusives.
Here’s the scoop: We’re keen to hear any ideas you’ve got for pieces that’ll engage and excite our audience. These can be intensive investigative features, first-person essays that’ll resonate with readers, deep dives into research, controversies, cultural phenomena, lifestyles, or even highly creative, visual explorations of a timely topic (infographs etc). You get the idea.
Send fleshed-out pitches to Katie.Drummond@Rodale.com…and tell your talented friends to do the same. Thanks!
