Editors at Sister 2 Sister are looking for journos with fresh, vivacious language, so if you’re looking to cover the biggest stars in music, film and TV for this pub, skip the fancy language. “Our stories are really more like conversations than interviews,” explained senior editor Ericka Boston.
The magazine prides itself on educating African-American women 18-49 in all aspects of their lives. Recent articles included a fitness story on the benefit of working out in pairs (along with a quiz to identify what type of exercise partner you are), a guide to achieving perfect spring curls and steps for preparing Afro-French cuisine.
Heads-up, freelancers. Sister 2 Sister accepts submissions in a variety of sections, both in print and online. For pitching etiquette and editors’ contact info, read How To Pitch: Sister 2 Sister.
