From the BC Outdoors guidelines:

First off, try and find out the name of the editor you want to pitch your story to, it isn’t mandatory but it’s a nice touch and you know the right person will see it. You can usually get that information on the masthead of the magazine, somewhere around page two or three.

Second, catch their attention quickly. Don’t start your first paragraph with a detailed explanation of what led you to this idea or how much you always wanted to be a writer, instead tell them something interesting right off the bat. Make them curious, get them hooked and then go into the back-story, how much detail you have to impart, how many pictures you have and what they depict.

Lastly, tell them (very briefly!) a little about yourself, what qualifies you to write on this subject, your writing experience, etc. This section is your resume. If it’s too long it won’t get read (remember I said they are very busy). The way they see it, if you can’t catch their attention in a moment, you also wont catch the attention of their readers – so they just won’t read it. This is your chance to lure the (in the case of BC Outdoors) quirky yet-loveable (assistant) editor into your camp and possibly make them think of you for other articles, even if they don’t like this one.
