How To Pitch To HuffPost's New Opinion and Personal Sections

January 8, 2018

In 2018, the Huffington Post plans to phase out its unpaid contributors columns. Here's how to pitch your story to the outlet's new sections, HuffPost Opinion and HuffPost Personal. All published contributions to these new sections are paid.

Opinion. A HuffPost Opinion piece is smart, authentic and timely, and offers rigorous analysis. That means it has something original to say, or an original point of view to offer that sheds a new light on an existing debate or pulls something into the spotlight that isn’t already there. It presents a strong argument backed up with provable evidence, and represents the views of the writer clearly and transparently. It is exclusive to HuffPost, which means it hasn’t been published anywhere else. If you’ve already pitched it elsewhere, you should let us know.

Personal. A HuffPost Personal piece is original, authentic, compelling and told in the first person. We feature writers from different backgrounds and identities with distinct voices and points of view writing about a variety of topics, including identity (race, gender, sexuality, disability, intersectionality, etc.); health and mental health; sex/love and relationships in every sense of the word; family and parenting; work, money and career; body and body image and just plain ol’ great stories about unique life experiences. It is exclusive to HuffPost, which means it hasn’t been published anywhere else. If you’ve already pitched it elsewhere, you should let us know.
