Note: This post is now dated. Some of the editors have left and others have moved around on the masthead, so many of the email addresses below will bounce. Please use edit@saveur.com when pitching a story. An editor goes through the mailbox regularly and forwards pitches to the appropriate editors.

Julia Allenby, a student in my food writing class, just pitched Saveur magazine and got this email from the editorial assistant. Finding the right editor is a critical part of pitching as a freelance writer, and usually it’s hard to find the right info. Here it is. Don’t forget to replace the [at] with an @.

“Although we don’t have any formal writers’ guidelines for Saveur, we generally offer the following suggestions. Queries and stories should be detailed and specific, and personal ties to the subject matter are important—let us know why you should be the one to write the story. Familiarize yourself with our departments and the magazine style as a whole, and pitch your stories accordingly. We suggest that prospective writers read at least a year’s worth of issues.

Please send your brief queries and any clips that you wish to include, preferably by
e-mail, to the appropriate individual(s), as noted below. By e-mail:

  1. MAJOR SCORE!! A big thank you to Julia for sharing!

  2. I encourage you to disguise these editors emails so that they will not make their way onto spam lists by way of roving spam-bots. A much better way to list would be to say “editors may be reached at firstname.lastname@bonniecorp.com.”

  3. Good point Nancy. I replaced the @ signs. I hope that will do it.

  4. Diane — Thanks for sharing the information. I look forward to more blog posts helping us who “write for food”!

  5. How nice to get a RT like this. Always happy to learn as much as possible on food writing…

  6. How did I miss this? Thanks!!

  7. Dianne,

    Thanks for the never-ending, first-rate information.
