Please keep this breakdown in mind when pitching ideas so our team can ensure your pitch is directed toward the right publication. If you are an experienced writer and have a pitch pertaining to one of the aforementioned categories, we would love to hear from you.

Now that you know what topics we cover, we can go over the topics we don’t feature in our publications. Because our print and digital products are a representation of the clients who send them, it is our number one goal to make the professional look their best. For this reason, we do not feature:

  • Commentary on religious, political, or socioeconomic beliefs
  • Promotion of alcohol, drugs, or businesses related to the sale of alcohol/drugs
  • Articles that reflect a particular opinion or point of view toward a topic that could be deemed sensitive (e.g., reproductive rights)
  • Anything that could otherwise be deemed controversial or upsetting to senders or recipients

Keep in mind how different audiences across the country might react to your pitch. If any demographic could potentially be put off or upset by the themes presented, it’s not for us.

How to pitch to us.

If you think your pitch fits our criteria based on the outline above, we would love to hear from you! To submit your pitch, please send an email to editorial@remindermedia.com.
