Pitch Us

We are actively accepting pitches for articles about storytelling. We are particularly interested in pitches from underrepresented voices and first-time authors. 

What we want

We’re looking for articles that explore storytelling within a single piece of work, or the connections between works. 

This can be a book review, an essay about the narrative arc in a TV show, an analysis of genre … anything that digs into what it means to tell a damn good story.

We just ask that it connect back to media in some way — think books, movies, music, art, and so on.


We currently pay $10 per essay or review. We believe that writing deserves to be compensated. We’re also paying out of our own pockets at this time.  We believe writing is worth more, and we plan to increase our rates as soon as we are able.

How to pitch us

If you have something to say about a story you love, we want to hear from you. Pitches should be emailed to contact@thewrangler.org

“Help! I’ve never pitched before!” That’s totally okay. Send us your idea anyway. We like this guide to formatting a pitch, and this one, too.
