What to Pitch Now: October 2017

It’s October everyone! I’m a little late here. I’m sorry about that. I’ve had a lot on my plate recently, and getting up earlier could fix most of them. Insert unpleased face. Anyway, are you stuck wondering what to start pitching now for print and digital mags and websites? Just follow the industry standard if you don’t have time to roam through media kits and editorial calendars. Print is about 3 months ahead, so they are currently covering January and February topics and stories. Digital is 1 month to 3 months ahead, so they are covering November, December, and January stories.

Topics to keep in mind when pitching:

  • New Years gifts and buys

  • Best of 2017 lists and items

  • New year, new you: self-focusing items

  • Valentine’s Day

  • Anything red

  • Winter skin and hair care

  • Thanksgiving centered stories

  • Gifts for the host or hostess

  • Cold weather accessories

  • Holiday party ideas

  • Outfits for the holiday season and parties

  • Last minute gift guide ideas
