Thank you for your interest to write for AZ Mag. Here’s a helpful guide on how to pitch to us.
Within the LGBTQ+ community, Black people and people of colour (QTIBPOC), are often under-represented and in many cases not represented at all. We want to create a platform that not only allows QTIBPOC to showcase their talents, but also allows us to address the issues that we face in our communities.
In 2015, AZ Mag was created as an answer to this and our aim is to create a voice for those who have felt excluded from the wider LGBTQ+ community.
AZ Magazine is where Y(our) voice is heard.
Our team is currently based in the UK. The website is run by Christania, Editor-in-Chief.
The main sections on the website are: Culture & News, Music, Arts and Fashion. Please note that you can still pitch to us even if your topic doesn’t fit into one of these categories.
We are looking for insightful topics related to being QTIBPoC or being Black/PoC so please ensure that you look through the website thoroughly and do not pitch topics that have already been covered. Your pitch should be no longer than 300 words. Please explain why it is an important subject that should be covered and how it would be suitable for AZ Mag’s readership.
Where possible please send us examples of your previous work or a link to your blog. We’d also like to know who you are so a short bio and links to your social media accounts should be included.
If no one from the AZ Mag team contacts you within 6 weeks, your pitch has been unsuccessful.
We look forward to hearing from you, if you have any questions please email Editorial@azmag.co.uk
Please do not write your piece until it has been commissioned.
