Description

Curbed is now seeking longform and narrative stories from freelance writers and photographers about the topics closest to our heart: architecture and design, real estate, and neighborhoods. We're looking for features that dig deep while also maintaining Curbed's voice. Interested in pitching? Read on!

What we're looking for:

We're seeking stories that run longer than our typical blog posts and that are thoughtfully reported. Some of our favorite past Curbed features include a look at the 1891 fight over a trolley along Prospect Park West, photo essays about Hurricane Sandy recovery and about New York City's awaiting-gentrification neighborhoods, and narratives about the histories of specific New York City buildings. We're eager to expand our features coverage in the areas of architecture and neighborhoods, and we're looking for profiles, too. (And yes, Curbed is a paying market!)

No personal essays, opinion pieces, listicles, how-to pieces, or trend stories, please.

How to pitch:

There are a few things we like to learn from writers when considering a story:

· What the story is, why it's a fit for Curbed, and the expected length

· How you plan to report it and who you've talked to so far

· Why you're the most qualified writer for the story

Please include a couple of clips or links that illustrate your features experience. Ideas for photos, graphics, and other visual components for the story are also helpful as we consider your pitch. E-mail pitches to Sara Polsky at [email protected]
