Want to write for YourTango? Send us your ideas!
Send pitches to our Editor at Large Andrea Zimmerman and include the word "Pitch" in your subject line. Please include your resume or bio and a link to a writing sample or blog if you have one. Your pitch should include a few lines detailing what you want to write about and how long you think it'll be. Pieces on our site are generally between 500 and 1200 words.
Please note! YourTango is all about the relationships you have with the most important people in your life (including yourself!) so anything you pitch should involve love, dating, marriage, divorce, parenting, mental health, sex and the like. A YourTango piece can be about almost anything—travel, food, fashion, current events—as long as it explains how the subject affects you or your relatonship with another person.
We look to freelancers for personal essays, reported articles and service pieces. The YourTango voice is smart, playful and real. Read some pieces on the site before submitting your pitch to get a feel for our tone and the type of stories we publish.
