The Femedic Is Accepting Pitches/ How To Submit (Pay: $100-150)

The Femedic is actively seeking pitches from writers with specialized knowledge in women’s health. 

They are particularly interested in articles about at-risk individuals, such as AME women, trans women, sex workers, and others. If you are not an experienced writer, please read this article: 10 Creative Writing Tips For Beginners

 

What They Want

  • Content written by medical professionals addressing clinical questions related to physical and mental health.
  • Typically commissioned rather than unsolicited pitches.
  • Content that covers non-clinical aspects of health, including social, political, identity, cultural, discrimination, and lifestyle factors.
  • First-person essays and narratives that raise awareness and explore experiences of underrepresented identities.
  • Features that offer bold, challenging perspectives and report in-depth on health-related issues.
  • Describing health and personal experiences, especially from underrepresented identities.
  • In-depth reported stories that offer new perspectives or teach readers something new. Topics might include underfunded medical research, media misrepresentation of conditions, or issues disproportionately affecting certain communities.
  • Clearly specify the affected group (e.g., people with endometriosis, lesbians, trans people).
  • Avoid unsupported cause-and-effect relationships.
  • Focus on well-formed arguments that serve the readers.

 

Crafting Your Pitch

  • Briefly explain what your article will cover.
  • Detail any planned interviews, including the expertise they bring.
  • Include no more than three clips or samples of your writing.
  • Offer new angles and perspectives.
  • Leverage your knowledge to add depth.
  • Support your opinions with solid evidence.
  • Ensure your pitch is unique and not already covered on the site.
  • Email your finished pitch to monica@thefemedic.com.
  • Avoid sending completed articles or previously published pieces.
  • The Femedic typically buys first rights, so please do not submit previously published material.
  • Expect a response within two weeks. If no response is received, assume the pitch was unsuccessful.

  • Writers with specialized knowledge or experience in women’s health.
  • The Femedic has a preference for pieces exploring issues from the perspective of at-risk individuals.
