PITCH TO US
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN WRITING FOR MOUTHY MAG.
WE ACCEPT PITCHES FROM BOTH EXPERIENCED AND ASPIRING WRITERS
ON A BROAD RANGE OF TOPICS.
BEFORE YOU SEND US YOUR PITCH, PLEASE READ OUR GUIDELINES BELOW...
PLANNING AND PITCHING
Before submitting a final article, we ask that you first submit a brief pitch
with an outline of your idea.
This should include:
Details of the themes you will cover
Your main argument and points
Any sources you are using or interviewees involved
When trying to convey an impactful message or story, your delivery matters.
Please make sure your piece is well thought out and cohesive before submitting to us, as well as
making sure that your idea is original and not something we have already covered.
FORMAT AND STYLE
We enjoy publishing a range of writing styles at Mouthy Mag, including personal essays, reviews, perspective articles, interviews etc. When deciding what type of piece you want to write, please indicate this in your pitch.
We primarily like to publish pieces that are conversational and punchy in tone, as well as articles that are thoughtful or with a necessary dose of humour where appropriate.
We are so grateful that people often choose to share their personal experiences with us in their writing however, we know that some topics may be difficult to write about.
Due to this, we encourage writers not to feel pressured to open up about topics that might have a negative impact on their mental health or be triggering to them in any way. In instances where speaking about these topics might well be a helpful and healthy outlet for many, we are also happy to publish pieces anonymously.
All articles submitted must be fact checked and referenced when they include third party information.
When referencing other material, please include citations or links in your draft so that we can include them in the published version. This also goes for any images or videos that you would like to include, otherwise, we will likely include our own.
Please make sure you proofread your work before submitting it to us, particularly checking for spelling and punctuation mistakes. While we appreciate the time that goes into writing, it can be frustrating to read copy with repetitive errors. We are happy to suggest edits and proofread for mistakes, but if we receive an article with excessive errors we reserve the right to edit or reject pieces submitted to us.
SOUND GOOD? THEN WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
