Freelance writers who want to write for Milwaukee Magazine will need to read the updated writer’s guidelines with new contact information to identify who to pitch for specific departments. The monthly magazine reports on the people, issues and places of Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin.
Writers can pitch articles about present-day issues, local celebrities, community businesses, as well as topics related to local entertainment, lifestyle, and culture.
The editors are especially seeking writers who can produce lively, well-researched service stories, as well as detailed feature-length articles (from profiles to investigative stories).
Word length: 2,500-5K for feature article; the editors will set the word length for other types of articles.
Payment: per word rate, based on experience. Payment is issued upon publication. (Rates are $700-$2000 per feature article, but will vary.)
First pitch the editors detailing your article idea, along with your experience.
Carole Nicksin, editor-in-chief, oversees the editorial direction of the magazine. Visit Milwaukee Magazine’s website for full writer’s guidelines.
