How to pitch Feeld
May 10th, 2023
We’re looking for more freelance contributors. Is it you?
If you’re reading this, we’re hoping that you’ve been thinking about how to pitch Feeld—we’re looking for more editorial work to publish on our blog, and this could be both of our lucky days. Below you’ll find all of the practical guidelines and editorial parameters on how you can become a contributor to Feeld’s blog.
A few things to keep in mind:
- We especially want to publish work by Feeld members, so please let us know if you are one. All are welcome, but if you’ve ever been on or are considering joining Feeld, we’d love to know about it.
- With that in mind, all contributors are offered a 6-month complimentary Majestic Membership as part of their compensation. You can also use this with your partnered accounts.
- We welcome contributors of all experiences, and all mediums. Any content for the blog can be pitched as a series of graphic designs, illustrations, text, or photography. If you’re interested in other mediums, like video or audio, email [email protected] for more details about those specifics.
- All guidelines are suggestions, and we’re always open and encouraging of any variations of a form. If you have an idea that diverts from the descriptions, please let us know, we’d love to hear more.
- We are open to pitches that fall entirely outside of these parameters. Surprise us!
Once you’re ready, you can email [email protected] with your pitches. Please be sure to include what kind of work you’re pitching, if it falls under one of the categories listed above, as well as a short paragraph explaining the particulars of your pitch (no need to include a draft, though if you have one ready to go, feel free to include it). Previous published materials that you feel are a good example of the kind of work you’ve already done are very welcome but not mandatory.
Here’s the kind of editorial work we publish on our blog:
A Week on Feeld, in which a Feeld member keeps a diary of their experiences during an uninterrupted week on Feeld. This series is intended to build an archive of what it’s really like to be a Feeld member at whatever moment they’re using it for whatever purpose, so we’re looking for all kinds of members to write about all kinds of interactions. Submissions can be anonymous or under your own byline. Our preferred word count is maximum 1500 words, but can be as short as you’d like, and the starting rate is $300USD.
Feeld Conversations are interviews, Q&A’s, or profiles of individuals that you think are part of Feeld’s orbit, whether that’s a shared mindset, relevant artistic and/or cultural work, or specific insights into relationships, intimacy, sexuality, self-discovery, and creativity. We feature artists of all mediums, educators and experts in relevant fields, and enjoy reading conversations that are sweeping (a profile of a person that talks about their entire body of work, for example) or precisely focused (an interview about a pivotal moment in a person’s life, let’s say). Our preferred word count is between 1200-2000 words, and the starting rate is $300USD.
Feeld Guides are our series of informative and educational articles about a wide range of different topics that intersect with sex, sexuality, gender, health, wellness, community, labor, and culture, but is not necessarily limited to just the above. The crucial point is to provide some kind of tangible knowledge or suggested guidance in a generous, open manner, and we do ask that these articles involve a certain amount of research and reporting, whether that’s referencing trusted citations or performing interviews with relevant experts. Our preferred word count is between 800 to 1500 words, and the starting rate is $500USD.
First Person is a series of memoir and personal history essays. We like to read about people discovering something new, or finding something new in what they thought they already knew; about relationships of all kinds, whether they’re intimate or distant, platonic or romantic, sexy or sweet—and of course we especially love those dynamics that manage to encompass, at one point or another, all of the above; your own philosophical or theoretical musings on big themes and bigger feelings; or your own individual response to a work of culture, whether that’s a piece of art, an artist’s oeuvre, or even an entire genre or medium itself. Our preferred word count is between 1000-1500 words, and the starting rate is $300USD.
We also occasionally publish original artwork as accompanying assets. If you’re an artist who would like to be considered for such an assignment, you can also email [email protected].
Still have questions that weren’t answered here? You guessed it: email [email protected].
We can’t wait to see you in our inbox.
