Want to write for YourTango? Send us your ideas!
Direct pitches to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the word "Pitch" in your subject line. Please include your resume 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 sex and relationships so anything you write about should involve love, dating, marriage, divorce, sex and the like. A YourTango piece can be about almost anything—travel, food, fashion, money—as long as it explains how the subject affects your (or someone's) love life.
if you write about traveling, explain how your trip influenced your outlook on dating; if you report on a new trend in sex toys, demonstrate how the toys are changing couples' sex lives; if you give kissing tips, show how the advice can bring spouses closer together.
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.
Personal essays should be intimate, revealing and surprising!
