First of all, note the slightly tricky capitalization on the name of the magazine – home/school/life.
This is a magazine for homeschooling families so keep that in mind when you query with an idea. They don’t want anything on AR, the Common Core or standardized tests unless you can make it really matter to this particular client base.
Amy Sharony, founder and editor-in-chief, welcomes pitches for feature articles, travel narratives, personal essays, and front-of-book pieces.
Shelli Bond Pabis, Sr. Editor, is interested in reviewing profile pieces, health and harmony articles, career pieces, and nature topics.
Your pitch should include:
- A synopsis of the proposed story
- Specifics about how you will write it including sources
- Why the story is relevant for this audience
- Why you are the person to write this piece
- 3 clips
Payment is negotiated on an individual basis depending on the assignment and the writer’s experience.
